Ephemera Society's August Virtual Conference
On Friday August 13, two ephemera professionals will share experiences with collections institutional and personal. Schedule of Speakers:

2:00 pm Paul Erickson, Randolph G. Adams Director of the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan, will discuss the rewards of opening researchers’ eyes to the power of ephemera — from trade cards to sheet music to broadsides to pamphlet fiction. Many researchers come to special collections libraries not knowing what “ephemera” is and not thinking it will play any role in their project. As a professional, Paul’s primary goal (and challenge) is to create spaces for scholars to encounter unexpected materials in library collections.

3:00 pm Beth Carroll-Horrocks, ESA Board member and Head of Special Collections at the State Library of Massachusetts, will take us through her personal collection — over 18,000 rulers on an astonishing variety of paper ephemera.

Aug 13, 2021 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
