LifeSpan is hosting a Stand Down for our military and local Veterans. 

The original Stand Down for homeless veterans was modeled after the Stand Down concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations. At secure base camp areas, troops were able to take care of personal hygiene, get clean uniforms, enjoy warm meals, receive medical and dental care, mail and receive letters, and enjoy the camaraderie of friends in a safe environment. Stand Down afforded battle-weary soldiers the opportunity to renew their spirit, health and overall sense of well-being.

That is the purpose of the Stand Down for homeless veterans, and achieving those objectives requires a wide range of support services and time. The program is successful because it brings these services to one location, making them more accessible to homeless veterans.

Booth Library's University Archives & Special Collections and the Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD) housed within it are unique resources on the EIU campus. The University Archives houses the 1895 Old Main time capsule, Garner Sheet Music Collection, and an oral history interview collection. The Archives serve to preserve University history through photographs, documents, faculty manuscript collections, and other diverse ephemera. Booth Library’s Special Collections represent a broader range of resources, including postcard collections, regional history related resources, and rare bound volumes from as far back as the 17th century. 

Bill Schultz, Jr., Cataloging Librarian who also serves as the Interim Head of the University Archives & Special Collections will provide an overview of the University Archives, Special Collections and IRAD. He will show examples of the types of records and documents that can be found in each area, discuss archival practices to organize and preserve such materials, and also present an orientation to this department’s online archival resources. He will also touch on how individuals can take steps to preserve their own physical and digital collections. The session will last approximately 90 minutes and will include a tour of the University Archives.
