The work on the Sammy Ofer Wing, including the new research and reading room and archive stores, is progressing well. We’ve updated the information about the project on the website, so please take a look. The information will be updated every two months, so please check the blog and website in the future.

May’s item of the month is a rare English book, “The Relation of a Wonderfull Voiage”, written by the lesser known explorer William Cornelis Schouten.
This very rare English edition is part of the Archive and Library’s rare books collection and tells a story of a forgotten seaman who discovered the sea passage between Isla de los Estados and the eastern extremity of the Argentine portion of Tierra del Fuego.
