October is American Archives Month, an opportunity for archives and archivists around the country to raise public awareness about the value of historical records and collections. Archives Month Philly is an annual celebration of archives, special collections and cultural institutions that draws inspiration from both the national American Archives Month effort and past Archives Week initiatives organized by the Delaware Valley Archivist Group.
Throughout the month there’s a diverse array of tours, workshops, screenings, exhibits and lectures. This Archives Month, discover, explore and get inspired by historical treasures and programs at Philadelphia’s most notable archives, special collections, repositories, and other cultural institutions. See you around at Archives Month Philly!
