From 2008 through 2014, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) administered a seminal grant program, "Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives," that enabled institutions across the U.S. to catalog historically significant archival collections that had long been hidden from the scholarly community, and to make these collections available for research.
Join us as we hear from archivists at three New York City institutions that were recent beneficiaries of the CLIR hidden collections award:
Brooklyn Historical Society

Speakers: Lisa Miller, Map Cataloger; John Zarrillo, Processing Archivist
