The Cooperative Africana Materials Project (CAMP) will hold its Spring Business Meeting on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Central Daylight Time via Zoom.

The meeting was planned to take place in Washington, DC in conjunction with the Africana Librarians Council Spring Meeting, but since that conference has been cancelled due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the meeting will be held virtually.   

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.
