Conferences/Meetings

  • The Brown University Library is dismantling its Art Slide Library collection of 35mm slides. We have thousands of slides relating to the Classical world and they are available for free for non-commercial, educational, or artistic purposes. Slides must be picked up on the Brown campus during the work week between the hours of 9 and 4. Please contact Karen Bouchard for further information or an appointment. The room must be cleared before the summer is over, so time is of the essence!
