Governor Dannel P. Malloy has issued a proclamation recognizing October 2017 as Connecticut Archives Month. This annual event is an opportunity to raise awareness about the value of Connecticut’s historical records and archives as well as the archivists who oversee them. The Connecticut State Historical Records Advisory Board has led the initiative on Connecticut Archives Month since 2005.
For the seventh consecutive year, the State Library will post announcements of activities by historical societies, museums, libraries and archives on its website. If your organization is planning to host an Archives Month event, workshop, conference, or exhibit, please contact Assistant State Archivist Allen Ramsey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
