Join Jan Zauha, MSU Librarian, in exploring the Ivan Doig Papers & Archives. Jan will discuss how MSU came to acquire the archive, the digitizing of the Ivan Doig Papers and the many projects that have come out of the digital Doig archive, which so far include a Big Sky Country State Fair exhibit; the Doig Country symposium; student projects; and "Exploring Ivan Doig" discussion series. Jan will also give the audience an insider view about what is known about Ivan Doig thanks to this archive and how you can access and use this information.
