Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the American Museum of Natural History’s new Gottesman Research Library and Learning Center. Described as “an Alice in Wonderland space with a column dressed up to resemble a mushroom” by the New York Times, the new Reading Room displays collections that highlight the history of the Museum, and the Alcove Gallery showcases holdings from the Library's Rare Book Collection and other special collections. Founded in 1869 and one of the largest natural history libraries in the world, the library features a unique collection of natural science books, journals, archives, photographs, moving images, art, and more.
Following the tour, join us for a social hour at a nearby location to connect with fellow local library and archives workers.
Please note: Space is limited, so if you’ve secured a spot but then find you’re unable to join, please let us know so we can open your spot to someone on the waitlist.
