The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) is pleased to announce the first Archival Field Day.
On Saturday, March 22, participating repositories and other organizations will assemble in the 92nd Street Y’s Warburg Lounge in New York City and challenge visitors to solve a series of questions using real-life documents. This year’s theme is Sports & Leisure. Each puzzle solved gives attendees a stamp in their passports. When they earn all the stamps, they can turn in their passports for entry in a drawing for prizes.
