BDC Celebrates Archives Month (Continued)

Weren't able to join us for a “Behind-the-Scenes” Tour?  While a "Behind-the-Scenes" Tour is the best way to understand what it is we do in the Library system's special collections and archives unit, we try to share facets of our work via social media and our Research Room displays.   

You will have noticed that this blog has included entries about some of our own local natural disasters.  Check out the entries behind the "earthquakes," "Great Sea Island Storm of 1893," and "hurricanes" labels.  We just encouraged participation in the Great SouthEast ShakeOut to learn some protection strategies during an earthquake.  We've posted a revised list of materials on the topic of the Sea Island Storm.  We've loaded  the Research Room display case with materials from our holdings on hurricanes, floods, fires, and earthquakes.  We've put a few images of these events online via Facebook and this blog. 

Be sure to keeping reading Connections and become our Facebook friend to make certain you see some of the “good stuff” about the bad natural disasters that have befallen Beaufort District throughout its long history. 

To see everything we have on a particular topic, you'd need to make an appointment and come to the Research Room for a research consultation.  Many of the items are fragile.
