Archives Month

Every October, the archival community celebrates American Archives Month with a variety of activities, programs, and posters.

CoSA is pleased to support the Society of American Archivists in its observance and promotion of American Archives Month.

We believe that American Archives Month provides an excellent opportunity for educating the public and resource providers about the work that archivists do and why it is important.

National Association of Secretaries of State Celebrate American Archives Month 2017

In a press release issued October 2, 2017, the National Association of Secretaries of State recognized the work of state archivists to preserve historical documents, photos, and genealogical records, thereby helping people discover otherwise hard-to-find historical records and collections.

“Our state archival staff has the important responsibility of securing the distinctive heritage of our state,” said NASS President Connie Lawson, who serves as Indiana Secretary of State.  “American Archives Month provides an exceptional opportunity for the public to dis­cover their state’s historical treasures in October and year-round.”
 
The NASS State Heritage Committee, co-chaired by Delaware Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock and Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, provides a regular forum for mem­bers to share best practices with one another. Subjects range from state archives, muse­ums, libraries, and historical sites to state records, including digital preservation and rec­ords management.
