The Rhode Island Historical Society will host a weekly virtual series, Love our Collections, highlighting the behind-the-scenes work of its staff to preserve and share the over 20,000 objects, 9 million feet of motion picture film, and 10 million pages of manuscripts in its collection. The series begins on Thursday, February 1, at 12 pm and will be offered weekly throughout the month of February.
People often ask how the RIHS has built its collection over the past 201 years. Meet with two key members of the acquisition committee, Deputy Executive Director of Collections & Interpretation Richard Ring and Associate Director of the Robinson Research Center Phoebe Bean, as they discuss the process of taking in new pieces and highlight recent arrivals.
This Virtual Talk is part one of our weekly Love Our Collections series.
