Fall Volunteer Fair

August 29, 11 a.m.–1:30 p.m.

University of Missouri-St. Louis, Millennium Student Center Patio and Commons

Stop by the SHSMO table at the UMSL Fall Volunteer Fair to meet archivists who will showcase all the volunteer opportunities available at our St. Louis Research Center. Friendly, energetic individuals who enjoy meeting people and working with the public can help in a number of ways. Volunteer opportunities include digitizing historical documents and media, making copies for patrons and staff, data entry, and assisting staff with a variety of tasks. And of course, all volunteers receive thorough training prior to undertaking an assignment. Volunteering at SHSMO is a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends while furthering The State Historical Society of Missouri’s services and mission.
