Welcome to the newly created blog for North Carolina Archives Week. What is North Carolina Archives Week? To quote our About page:
Archives Week is an annual, week-long observance of the agencies and people responsible for maintaining and making available the archival and historical records of our nation, state, communities and people. The events are a celebration of the work that we and our organizations do, but it is also a time to raise public awareness. By holding exhibit openings, workshops, lectures, open houses, and other related events during Archives Week, North Carolina’s archives community can make a concerted effort to bring the importance of our profession to our state’s citizenry and public leaders.
Any agency that deals with archives and historical records in North Carolina is invited to participate in Archives Week in North Carolina. The Society of North Carolina Archivists (SNCA) sponsors the week and will serve as an information clearinghouse for events occurring during the week. In addition, SNCA has published a guide to help in planning your events and SNCA officers will be available to provide assistance as well. The seventh annual Archives Week in North Carolina will take place October 24-30, 2011.

This blog will allow us to post news and events, as well as hopefully ask a few questions of you (whether you’re an archivist, librarian, or user of an archival collection) about what you’d like to see as part of North Carolina Archives Week 2011. So please visit again to learn more about what to expect in October.
