image

The annual Archives Bazaar snuck up on me this year. It’s tomorrow at USC!

The annual bazaar will be held at USC’s Doheny Memorial Library from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Featured sessions include the Archives Roadshow, from 10 a.m to 4 p.m., in which people can bring in historical materials to have them assessed.

Los Angeles Public Library map librarian Glen Creason will speak in the 10 a.m. session on Public Collections, Private Obsessions, along with Joseph Hawkins of the ONE Archives and Wally Shidler, a collector of transportation history.

Pecha Kucha will give five-minute presentations on Los Angeles archives from 11 a.m. to noon

Beyond the Archives Bazaar will be held from 1 to 1:50 pm.; Craft Brewing in L.A. from 2 to 2:50 p.m. and the documentary “The Good Giants” will be screened from 3 to 5 p.m.

More information is available here.

As a “private collector” member of LAAS who attended — by teleconference — the meeting at which the purpose of the Archives Roadshow was decided, any sort of monetary assessment was firmly rejected as inappropriate/undesirable.
