Showcasing Our Treasures: Meeting with the New UO Board of Trustees

Last week on March 27th, the UO Libraries hosted some of the new members of the UO Board of Trustees. The purpose of the visit was to introduce them to our unique collections in the Special Collections and University Archives and show them in-person some of our most treasured collection. Some of the collections highlighted included the Ken Kesey collection, Oregon Trail diaries, James Ivory papers, and the Children’s Literature collection. The Board of Trustees’ members met with Deb Carver, Dean of the Libraries, Linda Long, Manuscripts Librarian, and Jennifer O’Neal, Corrigan Solari University Historian and Archivist.
