DePaul University Special Collections and Archives - Behind the Scenes Tour

Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the department, including spaces usually off-limits to researchers. Visitors will learn more about collection strengths, how collections grow over time, what processing decisions provide researcher access to the materials, and which preservation activities are needed to support a largely 19th and 20th century collection.  There will be an opportunity for questions and to tailor the tour to the interests of the group.  

1st Tour: 10 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

2nd Tour: 11 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Maximum capacity: 8 visitors per tour.  Children 12 years and older who are accompanied by an adult are welcome.

Advance registration is required.
