Unique Holdings

University of Houston Libraries invites faculty and staff, students, researchers, and anyone interested in discovering unique materials to attend a brown bag presentation on Wednesday, November 2 in the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Pavilion at the MD Anderson Library.

Founded in 1982 as the Kaposi’s Sarcoma Committee, AIDS Foundation Houston (AFH) is Texas’ first organization dedicated to HIV prevention, education, and services. In August, UH Special Collections began collaborating with AFH to preserve their archives and make them available to the public for viewing and research. Join chief executive officer Kelly Young, chief program officer Nike Blue, librarian Vince Lee, and professor Whitney Cox for a discussion of what these archives contain, how they came to be a part of UH’s collection, and the importance of this history to the ongoing fight against AIDS.

The November 2 talk is part of Unique Holdings, a presentation series that highlights the rare archival items held by Special Collections and available for use by faculty, students and researchers.

Future Unique Holdings talks will feature librarians discussing other books and manuscripts of Special Collections that can inform and shape scholarly endeavors in any discipline.

Bring your lunch and enjoy an enlightening discussion.
