With one day remaining in May, a reminder that this month has been designated Preservation Month by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. May 1 was the occasion of a MayDay Call to Action by the Society of American Archivists, who are enlisting the help of the public in saving archives of all types. We here at OHSU developed a list of resources for folks to turn to for information about preserving family treasures and other important historical documents. If you haven't already, take one of these remaining days of May to consider what materials in your possession are in need of a little loving care, and whether some might be worth depositing in a repository near you.
And a reminder for the first day of June: the official dedication of Richard T. Jones Hall for Basic Medical Sciences will take place this Sunday, June 1. The celebration of Dr. Jones' life and work will begin at 2:00 pm in the Old Library Auditorium, and then conclude next door with the dedication ceremony.
