Personal Archives - Frequently the LA&M will receive the personal effects of one of us who has passed as well as the personal effects of those of us who find all the memorabilia we've collected over the years during a move. These items frequently include material representative of the persons experiences. A Volunteer Coordinator position is open for this collection.
Reference Collection - The reference collection is housed in the Teri Rose Memorial Library. An online catalog of this library is currently under development.
