Tomorrow, 1st May 2011 is MayDay - Help "Save Our Archives"


Keeping in theme with Preservation Week, talked about in our previous post, know that tomorrow, May 1st is MayDay!

Whether you manage your own personal archive, a society archive, institutional archive or all of the above, MayDay is a call to action to make sure that collections are protected.  After all, that is a fundamental responsibility of all archivists!

The Society of American Archivists gives ideas and resources on what you might do as an individual or as the staff of a repository!

You can help “save our archives” by participating in MayDay 2011!
