2016 Archives Fair
October 5, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
Join us at the National Museum of American History for an inside look at what it takes to protect, preserve and share the records at the foundations of history in these history-making times.
In celebration of American Archives Month, archivists and experts from a wide array of institutions across the region will be on hand to share their collections, answer questions and discuss the challenges and opportunities they face every day—from the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., and the DC Africana Archives Project, to the many Archives of the Smithsonian Institution, to the National Archives and Records Administration and many more. Anyone with an interest in history, culture, government accountability or preservation technology will find something of value.
Spend an hour or two visiting with experts in the Coulter Performance Plaza, take a tour of the Museum’s Archives Center or stay all day and enjoy presentations on issues of professional interest in the SC Johnson Conference Center.
