The 8th Annual Cambridge Open Archives

It’s that time of year again! The 8th Annual Cambridge Open Archives event takes place June 13-15 and June 20-22, with twelve Cambridge repositories opening up their archives to the public.

What is Open Archives? For six days over two weeks, twelve archives, special collections and collecting institutions in Cambridge will open their doors to the public to showcase some of their most interesting materials — and the tales that go along with them. If you love Cambridge history, this is a remarkable opportunity not to be missed.
