#AskAnArchivist Day is October 30th!

“What Is #AskAnArchivist Day?” You might be wondering exactly that!

Well, it’s an opportunity to:

  • Break down the barriers that make archivists seem inaccessible.
  • Talk directly to the public — via Twitter — about what we do, why it’s important and, of course, the interesting records with which we work.
  • Celebrate American Archives Month!
  • Hear directly from YOU about what you’re most interested in learning about from archives and archivists.


How Does It Work?

On October 30, archivists around the country will take to Twitter to respond to questions tweeted with the hashtag #AskAnArchivist. Contact the American Heritage Center @AHCnews!  If you have a question for another institution, you can browse a full listing of all the archives that are participating, too.

No question is too silly! No question too technical/practical/small!  Ask us how to store family photographs, or if there’s an archivist uniform, or if we all wear glasses and cardigans!  Inquire about our collections, or how they’re stored . . . let us know what you’d like to know more about!
