Cambridge Open Archives: MIT Distinctive Collections open house

Monday, June 05, 2023 at 4:00pm to 4:45pm

Building 14, 14N-118
160 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Join MIT Libraries’ Distinctive Collections unit to discover people, places, and inventions with ties to the Institute or to the city. From sewing machine patents, solar houses, and strobe photography, to MIT’s “rebirth” in Cambridge and the work of notable women at the Institute, we invite you to take a closer look at a selection of science and technology materials unique to Distinctive Collections.  

This open house is one in a series celebrating this year's Cambridge Open Archives initiative, an annual free event that offers members of the public the rare chance to visit a number of unique archives and collecting agencies in Cambridge. This year's theme is Born in Cambridge, and all tours take place during the week of June 5-9.
