American Archives Month

October is American Archives Month, a collaborative effort by professional organizations and repositories around the nation to highlight the importance of records of enduring value.

Archivists are professionals who assess, collect, organize, preserve, maintain control of, and provide access to information that has lasting value, and they help people find and understand the information they need in those records.   Augustana’s archives are located on the first floor of the library in Special Collections.  Feel free to visit us anytime!
