This week is Preservation Week. This week is always a great opportunity to think about what you, or a local organization or archive or library or government entity are doing to help make sure that future generations will be able to take advantage of all that has been preserved for them.
Many libraries and other facilities will hold special programs this week. Check with your local library or other repository to see if there are any special programs planned. Or, maybe a new resource guide has been created?
As a minimum, make sure that you are “preserving” your own personal heritage for your descendants to enjoy!
