About this Event

Part of a series, these online events offer an informative, enticing, and educational look into a selection of images that are representative of materials in our collections. Learn more about what we collect, how and why we do it, and get a glimpse into the fascinating world of rare books, manuscripts, and archives at the University of Miami Libraries.

Please note registration for each webinar will close at 11 a.m. the morning of the webinar.

The Zoom information will shared the day before the event, and again the day of.

These webinars will also be streamed on Facebook live.
