Welcome to American Archives Month!


October is finally here, and with it, American Archives Month!

While we celebrate archives and archivists all year long, Florida State University Special Collections & Archives will be participating in American Archives Month by sharing some of our personal experiences in the archives in blog posts here and on FSU Libraries social accounts.

Follow FSU Libraries on Twitter and Instagram (above), and join us for “Ask an Archivist Day” on Wednesday, October 7th, where we’ll be answering questions and chatting casually about our day-to-day work, our favorite materials from the archives, spookiest discoveries, and more!

How can you participate?

We want to hear from you! If someone in the future made an “Archive of You,” what items or documents might we expect to find? Are there any objects that capture an aspect of your personality, a time in your life, an achievement or an experience?

Share a photo of that item to your Instagram or Twitter, mention @fsulibraries and add the hashtags #ArchivesMonth and #ArchiveMe and we might share your entry on Ask an Archivist day, October 7th! Here’s my example:

Looking forward to a month of celebration. Happy October, and Happy American Archives Month!
