Some of Michigan's top historical archivists join us for a roundtable discussion on their unusual world--sometimes spent in dusty shelves and digging through dark basements and mysterious attics--but often waiting for you at the reference desk.
They'll share some familiar requests, general misconceptions, surprise treasures and offer some great advice for everyone on preserving documents, photographs and memories for posterity.
Recorded August 4, 2015 at Abick's Bar & Grill with our hostess, Kit Lindamood
