Archives Month in the MARAC region
October 2007

"Exploring New Worlds: Archives in our Lives"

American Archives Month is intended to raise public awareness about the importance of historic documents and records. Hopefully this project will grow over time into a fully coordinated nationwide effort to promote the value of archives and the importance of archivists.

To celebrate Archives Month in the MARAC region, the Steering Committee designated the month of October for activities. To submit events for inclusion on this page, please contact Vincent Novara (vnovara@umd.edu)
