This October, throughout the month, the West Virginia Caucus of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) is celebrating the second annual West Virginia Archives month by asking Mountain State Archives to share their events and collections on archivingwestvirginia.org.
The mission of Archiving West Virginia, launched in 2016, is to host an online directory of archival repositories around the state, give archives the chance to share blog posts and gallery photos highlighting and promoting individual archival collections, and maintain a calendar of events pertaining to archival collections and West Virginia Archives Month.
Archives Month gives those in the profession an opportunity to tell people that items that are important to them are being preserved, cataloged, cared for, and made accessible by archivists. Help us spread the word. Watch for future blog posts, attend an event, or download and print a West Virginia Archives Month Poster to hang in a public place or post on social media!
Are you a West Virginia-based organization that has archival collections accessible to the public? Add your organization to our directory or contact us about promoting your archives with a blog post or by adding highlights from your collections to our gallery!
