October is American Archives Month

As an archives, though, we are rather partial to October as American Archives Month. Sponsored by the Society of American Archivists,
American Archives Month is a collaborative effort by professional organizations and repositories around the nation to highlight the importance of records of enduring value. Archivists are professionals who assess, collect, organize, preserve, maintain control of, and provide access to information that has lasting value, and they help people find and understand the information they need in those records.
