Save the Date: Archives Month Facebook Live!

On October 27, 2016,12 p.m. EST, we will host a Facebook Live with our archives conservator, Nora Lockshin, and digitization specialist, Kira Sobers. They will give you a peek at the process of taking a historic diary from conservation, to digitization, to transcription by our volunteers on the Transcription Center! We'll keep which diary a secret until the day of, but it just may have something to do with the Civil War. RSVP now! 

Also, if you missed it, on #AskAnArchivist day, we answered many wonderful questions on Twitter. Please enjoy the following Storify which includes resources about preservation of documents, digital files, Halloween costume suggestions, and more!
