Opportunities and Challenges in International and Area Studies Library Collections: Welcome Reception for the Africana Librarians Council/CAMP Spring Meetings

Lecture | April 25 | 5-7 p.m. | Doe Library, Morrison Library, Doe 101

Marion Frank-Wilson, Librarian for African Studies, Indiana University; Shayee Khanaka, Librarian for Near/Middle East Collections, UC Berkeley

Library, Center for African Studies

Berkeley is excited to host the Africana Librarians Council (ALC) and Cooperative Africana Materials Project (CAMP) spring meetings for the first time since 1987. The ALC, founded in 1957, is a sponsored organization of the African Studies Association (ASA). CAMP, founded in 1963, is a joint effort by research libraries throughout the world and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) to promote the preservation and availability to scholars of publications and archives, print and digital, concerning the nearly fifty nations of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Brief lectures by Marion Frank-Wilson and Shayee Khanaka will discuss the continued value of international and area studies library collections to teaching and scholarship. New initiatives and challenges currently facing international and area studies library collections and research will be highlighted.

We welcome the Berkeley Africanist community as well as those with an interest in international and area studies library collections and research to attend and meet with a national community of Africana librarians.

Food and drink will be provided., 510-984-3012
