  • Go to the interactive campus map to find the McCarthy Center. Parking is in the Adam's and O'Connor lots.

What kinds of items can I bring to have scanned or photographed?

  • Bring up to three items to be photographed or scanned, like old photographs, letters, postcards, metals, clothes, or other artifacts. Artifacts may relate to your own experience or that of a family member. No weapons allowed.
