Chicago Researchers' Round Table Luncheons

Building the future of our programming


Having recently launched our digital portal, EXPLORE Chicago Collections, which brings together images and finding aids allowing for centralized cross-collection searching, we are now planning for a robust set of programs that will support our mission to promote the study of the Chicago region's history and culture. We are eager to engage faculty and experts from multiple disciplines with the collections and expertise available at our member institutions, and learn more about the ways we might increase the impact of our collective resources.

To support this process, we are excited to host two round table luncheons on Thursday, May 5, and Thursday, May 12, 2016, where we will hold discussions on best ways to provide further resources for faculty, graduate students, independent scholars, and the general public who have an interest in the City of Chicago.

Are you interested in sharing your expertise and helping us shape the future of programming at Chicago Collections? Contact Executive Director Jaclyn Grahl at to learn more.
