American Archives Month 2020 Recap

FSU Special Collections & Archives celebrated American Archives Month throughout the month of October by hosting events and sharing interesting items from our collection.

We kicked off the month with a takeover of FSU Libraries social media on October 7th for “Ask an Archivist Day.” FSU SCA staff answered questions on Instagram about how to organize and store family items, what the oldest item in our collection is, questions about FSU’s history, how to become an archivist, and more! The entire takeover is available as a highlight titled “Ask Archivists” on the FSU Libraries Instagram. On Twitter, staff engaged with other institutions participating in #AskAnArchivist by sharing interesting items from our collection and talking about what we do. All of the threads are available on the FSU Libraries Twitter page.

Here on the blog we shared a variety of posts related to our archival work in special collections.
