A conference focused on collecting, preserving, and using materials that document the history of Yellowstone National Park will take place next summer at Montana State University (MSU).

University of Wyoming Libraries and the MSU Library will co-host the second “Conversations on Collecting Yellowstone” June 5-8, 2022, in Bozeman, Montana. The conference coincides with the 150th anniversary of the creation of Yellowstone National Park. The first “Conversations on Collecting Yellowstone” conference was held in 2019 in Cody.

Scholars, researchers, private collectors, librarians, and archivists are invited to the conference to explore collections, scholarship, and research related to the park and its greater ecosystem, as well as look to the future of collecting and curating these materials.

The conference will feature speakers, panel presentations, social events, and networking opportunities. Dayton Duncan, an award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker, will be the conference’s keynote speaker. Tickets for the keynote speech will be available to the public for purchase.

The conference will include a vendor fair June 6-7, open to conference attendees and the public. A post-conference tour will visit Jackson and Yellowstone National Park June 9-11.

Conference organizers are seeking proposals for moderated discussions and panel presentations on a variety of topics. Proposals will be accepted until December 3.

Conference registration is expected to open February 1. For more information about the conference, visit www.collectingyellowstone.com.
