Are you a UCSC graduate student interested in learning more about conducting research with archives, special collections, and other primary source materials?
CART Commons fosters a sense of community for graduate students embarking on or already immersed in archival research to engage with one another and with archivists and special collections librarians in considering questions related to primary source research practices. Each gathering provides hands-on archival explorations and informal presentations alongside opportunities to discuss practical approaches, questions, challenges, and anxieties about archival research.
CART Commons is open to all UC Santa Cruz graduate students, and is hosted by Special Collections & Archives, University Library, in collaboration with the Elisabeth Remak-Honnef Center for Archival Research and Training (CART).
