Welcome to Archives Month Philly

Archives are information centers where records about the past – including diaries, financial records, photographs, and emails – are made available to researchers. During the month of October, everyone is invited to celebrate archives, the work of archivists, and the rich history of Philadelphia at events across the city and surrounding areas.

With all the upheaval and uncertainty of 2020, we know that most of you may not be planning an AMP-specific event, or hosting in-person events at your institution, and that’s okay!

This year, the AMP Planning Team has decided to continue promoting events through our website, calendar, and social media accounts, although we will not be planning or coordinating any in-person or virtual multi-institutional “centerpiece” events.
