Archives Month is an annual celebration of the importance of archives and historical records and of the work of institutions which preserve these unique resources. These facilities and their collections are quite varied, but together, they hold a rich documentary legacy which shapes our understanding of the state's past and our assessment of its future.

Archives, archivists, and others who care for these collections are encouraged to participate in this celebration. This is an ideal opportunity to direct public attention to all archival programs in the state at once, during a designated time each year. Kentucky's Archives Month is fast approaching, and it gives all participants a wonderful opportunity to meet new users, build institutional support, showcase holdings, and explain what we do and why it's important.

Archives Month 2013: Growing as We Go – Statewide Events Celebrate New Mexico Agriculture & More

Throughout every major period of New Mexico's historical past, agriculture ranks at the top alongside all the other important factors and circumstances that have influenced the distinctive characteristics of the Land of Enchantment. In recognition of National Archives Month, the State Records Center and Archives (SRCA), the New Mexico Historical Records Advisory Board and the Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Area are leading a statewide celebration of the ever-evolving cultural tradition of agriculture.

The theme of this year's celebration, Growing as We Go, pays homage to the state's dynamic agricultural heritage, and a diverse roundup of statewide events are planned throughout the month of October. Growing as We Go culminates in a three-day span (Oct. 24-26) of free educational sessions at the SRCA in Santa Fe and a screening of historical films at The Screen on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Download the press release and book signing flyer.

For a complete list of all statewide events slated for this October's National Archives Month, please visit the New Mexico Archives Month webpage.

October is Archives Month in Virginia, and we'd like to invite you to join in the celebration, "Homegrown: Celebrating Virginia's Cultural Heritage in Its Archives & Special Collections!" Whether it's agriculture, viticulture, aquaculture, horticulture, food culture, or film culture, Virginia has a wealth of diverse culture.

During Archives Month 2013, the Commonwealth's archives and special collections will be highlighting the historical records, photographs, and moving images that document Virginia's many traditions. Within these customs and traditions are aspects of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and collective memory that tie communities to where they've been and where they are going.
