The Grand Reveal: A behind-the-scenes peek at the UM Archives

'We ourselves might have done a few odd things here and there over the years too.'

Shelley Sweeney is throwing caution to the wind. The head of the Archives & Special Collections will be divulging some of the ‘secrets and thrills’ of her work on Friday, Dec. 6, from 3 to 3:30 p.m., in a talk entitled “The Grand Reveal: A Behind-the-Scenes Peek at the University of Manitoba Archives.”

After 21 years in the role, you get a certain perspective on the university, the province and its people, she says. Sweeney retires at the end of the term after a long and interesting career at the U of M. Read more about Sweeney’s career here.

The talk is  followed by a drop-in reception from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, 3rd Floor, Dafoe Library.
