Brenda Marston was amazing as she shared valuable information about the exhibit to me and my friends. What an afternoon well spent!!!

It was a great discussion - particularly because of the diversity of the speakers, not only the range of topics covered, but background, training, and interests: perfectly representative of the diversity of Cornell.

Was it recorded, or is it available on podcast? Alternatively, would it be possible to access transcripts of the papers given? They were each so full of pertinent information that I would love to revisit the papers / discussion in order to continue processing what was presented.

Finally, I would love to meet with/collaborate with other departments and collections focused on provenance research. If there's any listserv or, weekly meeting I can join, please let me know!

Thanks so much,
Lexie Palmer
