Virtual Event



Crack open your lunch box and settle in for our first installment of our Library Lunch Hour put on by CENTRO’s Library & Archives department on September 28th, 2021 at 12 PM EST! Nerd out with us as we explore our collection of historical archives which includes primary sources, photographs, art, poems, texts & more!

We’re kicking off our Lunch Hour with Centro Library & Archives staff member, Aníbal Arocho as he provides an overview of Centro's archival collections and a basic introduction to archives, and how to begin building a collection. After this, stick around for a Q&A and chat with Anibal!

Aníbal Arocho is the Library Manager at the Center for Puerto Rican Studies Library & Archive, Hunter College, City University of New York where he manages library reference services, and a growing collection of over 18,000 items. He holds a Masters of Science in Library and Information Science from the Pratt Institute.
