RETURN TO NEW YORK ARCHIVES WEEK  
NEW YORK ARCHIVES WEEK 2017

This fall, the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (ART) will be celebrating its 29th Annual New York Archives Week from October 18th-25th, 2017.

SUBMIT YOUR ARCHIVES WEEK EVENT:

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. Last year, over thirty institutions in New York City held events relating to archival records. We would like to see similar participation this year and thus 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 exhibition 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.

Please submit your Archives Week event through our linked form for inclusion in the Archives Week event calendar. 

The deadline for submission of the form is Friday, September 15, 2017. Questions regarding submissions should be sent to president@nycarchivists.org.

IMPORTANT DATES:

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 exciting events:

  • On Thursday, October 19th, we will hold a full-day symposium focusing on, Archives and Local History
  • On Saturday, October 21st, the annual K-12 Archives Education Institute will take place. The focus will be on the built environment.
