Students are invited to join UNC archivists on April 6 for a special viewing of the exhibit From Di-Phis to Loreleis: A History of Student Organizations at UNC and to get tips on how student groups can preserve their own history.

The event will run from 2 to 4 p.m. in the North Carolina Collection Gallery of Wilson Library. Students may drop in at any time. Light refreshments will be served.

Through the event and exhibit, the Library hopes to encourage students to preserve documents and memorabilia of their student days and donate them to the Library so they can be preserved and made available for study.

University Archivist Jay Gaidmore said that the Library is interested in both official records and items such as photographs, publications, and objects used in activities of the organizations.

“We’d like future Tar Heels to have the opportunity to know how much today’s student organizations contribute to UNC,” he said.

From Di-Phis to Loreleis features 157 records, photographs, publicity materials, publications, and other items that document the evolution of student organizations from the University’s founding through the present. It will be on view through May 31, 2011.
