October is American Archives Month

Archives Month is a coast-to-coast collective recognition and celebration of the importance of the American historical record. It is designed to encourage Americans to explore archives in their hometowns, their state capitals, and in Washington; to find relevancy and personal meaning in an archive's holdings, and to become advocates for the preservation of these important materials.
