One of my primary duties is answering people's questions -- we call this reference. They may be quick questions -- when did my great-grandfather attend RPI? -- or they may be in-depth research questions -- what were the origins of American human space flight? For in-depth research, I help people access collections where they search for the answers they seek.
Reference activity tends to slow down in the summer, so I thought I would try to drum up some business. Here is your chance to ask anything about RPI history -- people, places or things! Leave your question in a comment to this post and I'll do my best to respond with an answer. There are limits to what any human archivist can do so keep it within reason! :-)
