Digging Deeper programs are designed to provide attendees with behind-the-scenes insight to primary research materials in the many archives and libraries in Seattle and King County.
At The Wing’s Governor Gary Locke Library & Community Heritage Center, you have access to more than 18,000 resources and materials including books, periodicals, oral and video histories, photographs, historic documents and other artifacts related to the history, culture, and art of Asian Pacific Americans. Located on the third floor of “The Wing,” the Center provides opportunities to learn more about exhibitions and Asian Pacific American history, art, and culture. Bob Fisher, the Collections Manager, will present a general overview of the collections, explain how the online and digital resources are organized, and reveal what types of materials reside here that are unique compared to other Northwest Special Collections.
