Celebrate Virginia Archives Month!

10/25/2011

Archives Month celebrates those institutions and individuals that help preserve and make accessible records of our actions as citizens, businesses, religious groups, governments, and society.

To honor Archives Month, the Virginia Historical Society will be participating in the Archives Fair at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The theme for 2011 is “Celebrating Advocacy for Archives.” VHS archivists will be educating participants about the society’s manuscript and archival holdings and answering any questions about archives and preservation. The Virginia Archives Fair gathers archival institutions in central Virginia to illustrate the wide breadth of primary source materials available to researchers and interested parties.

In addition to the VHS, participating institutions include: Catholic Diocese of Richmond, Library of Virginia, Museum of the Confederacy, Newport News Library, Norfolk Southern Archives, Old Dominion University, Randolph-Macon College, Rockefeller Library at Colonial Williamsburg, UVA Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, Valentine Richmond History Center, VCU James Branch Cabell Library, VCU Tompkins-McCaw Library, Virginia State University, and Virginia Union University.

The event will take place on the first floor of the VCU James Cabell Library on Friday, October 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

    For the curious historian the archives reveal surprises, realities and unknown facts. An untold wealth of information abounds. From a personal standpoint I found the archivists and library staff as valuable as the material read and regret I live too far away to read on a regular basis. Hope this event reaches many an imaginative mind.
