As of July 6th, APS offices are open to staff and invited visitors. The Society will remain closed to the public for at least the rest of the summer. Library & Museum staff now have access to our collections and will respond to reference and photoduplication requests as soon as possible. However, please note that response times may be delayed due to increased demand. The Society will continue a robust slate of virtual programs throughout the summer and fall. Read more about virtual programming and resources that can be accessed remotely. For further information on the APS reopening and its COVID response, please click here.

Through Indigenous Eyes

The APS Library's digital exhibit "Through Indigenous Eyes" features a collection of video interviews with Ojibwe, Cherokee, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot elders and knowledge keepers who visited the APS for the “Building Bridges between Archives and Indian Communities” conference in May of 2010. In these multimedia exhibits, the speakers offer insights and stories about the photographs of two distinguished anthropologists, Frank G. Speck and A. Irving Hallowell. 

This exhibit is currently being adapted to our new website. In the meantime, the interviews that make up this exhibit can be viewed on the APS Library Youtube channel. (
