California Archives Month
October 2013

Celebrate the value of California's historical records and recognize those who maintain our historical resources, local government archives, historical societies, genealogical societies, business archives, and university archives.

The California State Archives, Society of California Archivists, California Historical Records Advisory Board, and National Archives encourage archives, libraries, museums and historical societies to plan special events or exhibits that highlight their collections of valuable documents and artifacts. Repositories might invite the public to behind-the-scenes tours, have workshops on using their collections, give talks on research resulting from their collections, or just have a party. Exhibits that are open during Archives Month can also be included (even if they open beforehand).
