*NEW* Keep up with Georgia Archives Month information and activities through Facebook!
Archives Month is a way to celebrate the value of Georgia’s historical records, publicize the many ways historical records enrich our lives, and recognize those who maintain our communities’ historical records. This is the ideal time to call attention to your organization or local government, and its work in preserving Georgia’s documentary heritage. The celebration will be publicized across the state through a Governor’s proclamation, a poster sent to cultural institutions across the state, on Facebook and Twitter, newspaper articles, and events at various repositories.
We encourage you to think of ways in which your organization or local government can celebrate Archives Month in your community. Create an exhibit, host a reception, give tours, write articles, or develop special programs – let your imagination be the limit! To help you, the Society of American Archivists (SAA) has created a web site with several resources including a sample press release. For additional ideas, please see previous years’ activities pages at GAM past activities and the Council of State Archivists (CoSA). If you will provide information on your planned activity, we will be happy to help publicize your event on the Georgia Archives Month Facebook page and Twitter feed. To submit information about your planned event, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
