IHRC Announces Temporary Acquisition Halt in 2008

The IHRC is committed to preserving materials that document immigrant experience and making them available to the public. In 2008, our staff will be continuing to assess our collections and process materials as we place a temporary hold on acquisitions. Outreach programs will provide archival training and education, as well as resources, in 2008 and beyond.

IHRC Community Meetings on May 18 & 22

The IHRC will hold community meetings on Sunday, May 18 and Thursday, May 22, 2008, about the capacity issues facing archival collections at the University of Minnesota. Program Director Haven Hawley will speak at both meetings, which will be held in St. Paul and at the University, and seek information about community needs.
