Re-organizing the archive

Things are getting into shape at the University Museum's archive. Yesterday, Dona Bachman, the director of the University Museum and Alison Erazmus, Curator of Exhibits, visited the archive with a tour by Susannah Munson, Curator of Anthropology. Susannah oversees the collection at our off campus storage building; what we at the museum call 'the archive.' This summer, Susannah and her staff are re-organizing the archive and it is looking good.

Many visitors of the University Museum see only the galleries in Faner. But, we often host a variety of groups who take tours of our large archive to see all the works not on display at the museum. Contact Susannah Munson if you or your class wish to take a tour of our archive to see more of what the University Museum has to offer. smunson@siu.edu
