What’s “Special” in Special Collections?

Have you ever wondered what exactly “Special Collections” is? What treasures are stored in the mysterious closed stacks of this department? What secrets are waiting to be uncovered? What do the archivists do in there? For that matter, where exactly is it? And what makes it “special”?

Special Flyer JPEGIn celebration of South Carolina Archives Month, Dr. Butler will present a lecture designed to answer just such questions. Join Nic as he discusses what resources are housed in Special Collections and how they can be used by historians, researchers, students, and genealogists.

Samples from the collection will be available for perusal. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.

Saturday, October 20
2:00 p.m.
Charleston County Public Library Auditorium
68 Calhoun Street

For more information, contact the Special Collections Department at or (843) 805-6967.
