Archives Week 2013 - October 6-12 - SAVE THE DATES!

Sunny days are ahead, students are wrapping up their studies, and the Board of Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (ART) would like to thank you for another wonderful year and wish you a very merry Summer!

Don’t forget! This fall, the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (ART) will be celebrating its 25th Annual New York Archives Week, October 6th - 12th, 2013. Archives Week events are designed to raise the public’s awareness of the importance of preserving and making accessible our documentary heritage. Activities include a wide range of programming, including lectures, workshops, exhibitions, and tours of repositories, all free and open to the public. We encourage participation in this big celebration and urge you and your repositories to plan an Archives Week event.

Suggested Archives Week activities:

* Hold an open house, highlighting unique materials held by your repository.

* Mount an exhibit using materials from your repository.

* Demonstrate or report on activities/projects supported by grants.

* Ask a researcher to speak on the value of your collections to his/her research.

* Present a film festival using films or videos held by your repository.

* Sponsor lunchtime talks by archivists, historians, and other researchers.

* Organize a walking tour of your repository's neighborhood.

In addition, as part of an effort to draw public attention to Archives Week and highlight the importance of our repositories and collections, ART will sponsor three events: we will honor our colleagues at our annual Awards Ceremony, we will hold a full-day symposium, and host the fourth annual K-12 Archives Education Institute.

Additional information about New York Archives Week and event submissions for the Archives Week calendar will be announced on the website in July.
