October is American Archives Month! This month is all about raising awareness for the archiving profession and remembering why archives are important to our society and history.
It’s a celebration!
Happy American Archives Month, everybody! Are you following along with any events happening this month? #AskAnArchivist day, celebrated on Twitter, was on October 5. Did you participate? If not, no worries – there is still plenty of events left to celebrate! Click here to see a full list of upcoming events celebrating this month from the Society of American Archivists.
Whether you choose to celebrate in person at a Lunch & Learn series at the Eisenhower Presidential Library or virtually via YouTube for the National Archives Virtual Genealogy Fair, there are many ways to participate, both locally and virtually.
Celebrating American Archives Month also gives programs a chance to refresh their outreach and add visibility to their archives. The Society of American Archivists gives great pointers on public relations to vamp up awareness. What do you plan to do to spread awareness? Let us know in the comments below!
