One of my Favorite weeks – Preservation Week (23-29 April 2017) – and days -- May 1 (May Day)!
This is a week that I like to make sure and recognize every week. Records preservation is so important to family historians!
Learn more about Preservation Week as an initiative of The American Library Association (ALA). There are links to informative pieces, including Advice from Donia.
The Library of Congress celebrates preservation every week of the year via it’s dedicated Preservation webpage.
And, just a few days later, don’t forget that May 1 is May Day – Saving Our Archives which focuses on emergencies and emergency preparedness for archivists and other cultural heritage professionals.
Let us know if preservation week or May Day activities are taking place near you.
