American Archives Month 

Archives Month has arrived! This is a month dedicated to Archival Institutions which is our opportunity to remind you we are here to serve you!

What are Archives?

An archives is a place where people go to find information. But rather than gathering information from books as you would in a library, people who do research in archives often gather firsthand facts, data, and evidence from letters, reports, notes, memos, photographs, audio and video recordings, and other primary sources.
