Calendar Events

American Museum of Natural History Presents: Exploring the Museum Archives: New York Archives Week

In honor of New York Archives Week, discover the Museum Library’s rich history of scientific exploration from around the world. Rarely seen collections of field notes, films, photography, artwork, and memorabilia will be on display to tell the hidden stories behind the Museum’s world-famous dioramas and exhibitions. Watch early moving-image footage from historic Central Asiatic Expeditions to Mongolia, in which a team led by Roy Chapman Andrews discovers the first dinosaur eggs, or browse the original landscape studies painted in the field during Carl Akeley’s perilous expeditions to Africa. The Library staff will explain how these one-of-a kind objects are cared for and give hands- on demonstrations of the new Digital Special Collections, an online endeavor to make the Library’s extensive image collection available for research and reference. This event is part of the New York Archives Week, which runs October 6–12, 2014, an annual celebration aimed at informing the general public about the diverse array of archival materials available in the metropolitan New York region.
