Welcome to SILSSA!

SILSSA is the Student Association for the Pratt SILS community, as well as the Student branch of the ALA for Pratt– If you’re an enrolled student at Pratt SILS, you’re already a member of SILSSA!

Here’s a quick overview of what we’ve got coming up:

SILSSA is pleased to host a tour of the Schomburg Center’s Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books division.  The tour is free, but only a limited number of spots are available.

The Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books division holds rare primary materials dedicated to the history and culture of people of African descent throughout the world with a concentration on the Americas and the Caribbean.  This is a great opportunity to view a unique collection and see how a specialized library builds its various collections.

When: Tuesday, October 13th 2:00-3:30 PM

Where: The Schomburg Building, 515 Malcolm X Blvd. New York, NY 10037

Please plan to meet at 1:45 PM outside the Schomburg Building to ensure a prompt start!
