Community docent program

The Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries is now accepting applications for participants in its docent program.

The Docent Corps is a skilled group of volunteers who provide tours of the library galleries to visitors, ranging from fifth-graders to adults.

A 10-week training program provides an opportunity for docents to meet curators, archivists and other special collections staff; learn about the collections and techniques for leading tours; and become familiar with all parts of the Russell Special Collections Building.
