Archives Month is an annual event sponsored by archives and special collections across the nation. Archives showcased include academic, private, corporate, religious and governmental repositories. 

Not sure what an Archives actually is? You're not alone!

Your history is also our country's history! Letters from relatives, your grandmother's diary, photos and videos of you and your friends all provide vital and unique information about your life or the history of your family. They also represent our country's cultural heritage of a certain place and time - they are part of our community's collective memory!

Happy National Archives Month!
