October is Archives Month

Archives Month is a statewide recognition and celebration of the value of Oklahoma’s archives. The theme for Archives Month is “Images of Oklahoma.”

Through Archives Month activities, exhibits, and public programs, we hope to promote public interest in and understanding of archives. Every Oklahoma organization and institution working with historical and archival records can publicize the many ways that archives highlight important evidence of the past and give us perspective, shaping who we are today as people, communities, and as a state.

An Archives Month or Week has been celebrated in many states across the nation. Oklahoma has participated, thanks to sponsorship by the Oklahoma Historical Records Advisory BoardOklahoma Department of LibrariesOklahoma Historical Society, and Oklahoma Museums Association with funding provided by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
