Upcoming Events

Join us in the Archives on Thursday, March 7th, 2019 for a marathon of transcribing historical menus from the CIA Menu Collection. 

Stop by to look through old menus and we'll get you started transcribing in no time!   We'll also debut a new version of menu bingo (with prizes, of course!) and have snacks.

What:     This season's menu transcribathon will feature African-American themed menus selected from the CIA Menu Collections.  The event is hosted by student Archives assistant, Khori Eubanks, who conceived of the idea and selected the menus.  Come support Khori, the Archives, and contribute to the ongoing digitization of our menu collection - so that all menus can be accessed anywhere by anyone!

When:    March 7 from 4:00 to 10:00 pm. (stay for as little or as long as you would like!)

Where:  Archives & Special Collections, Hilton Library (main floor)

Who:      Everyone is welcome!

Questions: Contact Nicole Semenchuk at or at (845) 451-1270.
