November 9, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library #301
The Library Treasures Initiative is pleased to host Richard Sousa, an economist, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, and formerly Director of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives, Stanford University, as a distinguished visitor and the first speaker of the Library Treasures Initiativeâ€™s Guest Speaker Series. During his directorship at the Hoover Library & Archives (2007-2012), Mr. Sousa secured major acquisitions, which include the Chiang Kai-shek diaries; the William Rehnquist papers; the Georgian, Estonian, and Lithuanian KGB files; and the Baâ€™th Party Papers of the Iraq Memory Foundation. Moreover, he initiated major facilities upgrades to the archives preservation and conservation labs, the library processing room, and the archives reading room. Sousa will share with the UH community his personal insights into the art of the library & archives development in a constrained environment. The Library Treasures Initiative is co-sponsored by the College of Arts & Humanities and Hamilton Library, and funded by an anonymous donor for AY 2018-2021.
