CAMP (Cooperative Africana Materials Project) will hold its Fall Business Meeting on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Central Time via Zoom.

The meeting was planned to take place in Washington, DC in conjunction with the African Studies Assocation's Annual Conference, but since that conference will be held virtually due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, CAMP's meeting will also be held online.   

CAMP member libraries fund projects and the acquisition of rare research materials related to the study of sub-Saharan Africa through an annual membership fee. Representatives of member institutions meet twice a year to discuss current and future projects and set priorities for additional CAMP projects and acquisitions.
