About Oregon Archives Month

Since 1989 Archives Week or Month has been recognized by governors, provincial leaders and mayors across North America. They join in efforts to: increase the public’s awareness of archives and historical records; educate people and organizations about preserving their own historical records; and encouraging the exploration of archives in their area.

Previous Years


Archives Month programs vary from state to state and usually include activities such as developing posters, award presentations, exhibits, lectures, open houses and workshops.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
