01 Jun 2023 11:57 AM | Gretchen Neidhardt (Administrator)

We had over 100 attendees join us for our Zoom panel "Public Records in Chicago: Acquisition and Accessibility," co-hosted with Chicago Collections. Our panelists included Douglas Bicknese, Director of Archival Operations, National Archives at Chicago; Matthew Messbarger, Archival Specialist, Office of the City Clerk, City of Chicago; Johanna Russ, Librarian IV, Unit Head, Special Collections, Chicago Public Library; and Deborah Witzburg, Inspector General, City of Chicago. Each shared access tips for their own institutions, along with strategies for research roadblocks and hidden gems of their collections. You can view the recording of the session and take a look at the resources mentioned by each panelist. Many thanks to our panelists, the Antiracism Working Group, Chicago Collections, Chicago Area Archivists Steering and Events, who all helped us coordinate this event.
