Be part of something exciting!
Robert L. Bogomolny Library has several new projects underway and we could use your help. (Donations can also be made to Robert L. Bogomolny Library's general fund.)
Planned Parenthood Collection
Robert L. Bogomolny Library is teaming up with UMBC and Planned Parenthood of Maryland to hire a project archivist to process nearly a century's worth of records detailing the history of Planned Parenthood in Maryland, as well as create a traveling exhibition--but in order to meet the overall goal of $20,000, Robert L. Bogomolny Library must raise $5,000.
White Lung Association Preservation Project
The White Lung Association (WLA), a worker-led nonprofit, spent 30 years educating the general public about the hazards of asbestos exposure. The WLA worked on a national level to help craft regulations and laws, train asbestos abatement professionals, help those sick with asbestos-related illnesses, and review buildings for asbestos exposure, as well as develop numerous projects and campaigns to eliminate public exposure to asbestos. Robert L. Bogomolny Library's Special Collections department recently acquired the WLA's archive, and needs funding to organize, appraise, and catalog documents for the final collection, and make this important collection available to researchers and the general public.
