Archives Month is an annual, month-long observance of the repositories and people responsible for maintaining and making available the archival and historical records of our nation, state, communities and people. The events are a celebration of the work that we and our organizations do, but it is also a time to raise public awareness. By holding exhibit openings, workshops, lectures, open houses, and other related events during Archives Month, North Carolina's archives community can make a concerted effort to bring the importance of our profession to our state's citizenry and public leaders.
Any institution or repository responsible for archives and historical records in North Carolina is invited to participate in Archives Month in North Carolina. The Society of North Carolina Archivists (SNCA) sponsors the month and the Archives Month Committee sets the annual theme, designs, prints, and provides posters and bookmarks for repositories, and serves as an information clearinghouse for events.
