Happy International Archeology Day! Our young guests at tonight’s ‪Archives Sleepover‬ will be combining archives with archeology for our theme “History, Heroes, and Treasures.”
What’s the connection? Archeologists plan their digs—in the ground or the water—by doing research in archives. They use historic documents to prepare where to dig and what to expect they will find, as well as learn about the people who lived or worked at the site that is now being excavated.
Tonight our archival explorers will dive into the records of the National Archives! They will meet an underwater archeologist from the National Park Service who is exploring the shipwreck of the “America”as well as representatives from the Navy History and Heritage Center. 

Our archival explorers will learn about mapping underwater shipwrecks and see tools used by underwater archeologists, as well as artifacts found in shipwrecks. They’ll even have the chance to dress up as underwater archeologists!
We’ll share photographs of their adventures on Monday!

This sounds like so much fun.

Get To Know Your Tumblarians Tuesday: Favorite class?

lecieltumultueux:

I did NOT forget about y’all today! Just running behind schedule. I also don’t think I’ve asked this question before, just some related ones. Feel free to internet flog me if it’s a repeat.

What was your favorite class ever?

From undergrad, it was probably Religions of the World or Comparative Lit of the Emerging World.

From library school, it was definitely Popular Materials.

rachelfershleiser said: I would like to know how you think libraries play a part in education, both formal and life-long. Thanks Lemony!

lemonysnicketlibrary:

The part libraries play in education is the part bubbles play in champagne.  They may seem at first to be merely a shimmery addition, but they are the central feature of the entire enterprise and the reason, joyous and astonishing, to keep imbibing.

We’re taking a road trip through Lowcountry South Carolina and Georgia in this week’s Literary Tourism.

Let’s get our bookish traveling on.

This is my home turf and these are some lovely suggestions.

Tumblarians…How competitive is the library job market in the Chicagoland area? (I’m guessing very.)

Because there are a couple of awesome jobs posted right now and I’m tempted to apply, and tbh if that’s a regular thing I might have to consider moving back up north. The public library jobs down here just aren’t too plentiful, and they’re all kind of the same, not very dynamic position. 

Signal boost for Chicago folks.
