For Infinity and Beyond

Starting in September 2003, Preservation and Conservation Services initiated a "mini" open house (just a half hour!) once a month to highlight some aspect of our work and give us a chance to welcome MIT Libraries colleagues into our space.

Beginning in January 2007, the series was changed to quarterly, expanded to 45 minutes, and renamed "For Infinity and Beyond." The programs are open to MIT Libraries staff members only.
