Special Collections and Archives for the people!

We’ve been lucky to have a few recent opportunities to share our collections with fellow Boise State employees as well as local community members:

A selection of our Basque materials were on display at an event hosted by the Cenarrusa Foundation for Basque Culture in the Capitol building: 

Three kindergarten students from Vista Montessori School visited with their teacher to study current and historic maps of Idaho and Boise:

As part of the “Places You’ve Never Been” series hosted by the Boise State Professional Staff Association, approximately 30 staff members were given a behind-the-scenes tour of the Archives and viewed some of our favorite items from the collection. (Did you know there's a piece of the original blue turf in the Archives??):

Let us know if you and your pals want to visit and check out some of our Boise State and local historic treasures. We’re on the 2nd floor of the Albertsons library and we’re open Monday thru Friday from 9 to 5—except Wednesdays when we’re open until 8pm!
