October is finally here and that means it’s American Archives Month! Every year since 2006, cultural institutions around the United States participate in events to get the word out about what archives really are, and the role archivists play in preserving and presenting history.
George Mason University’s Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) is a part of the Virginia Archives Month Committee, which began the planning stages many months ago. The Virginia caucus of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) came up with the theme “Spirits in the Archives,” which includes ghostly spirits, school spirit, or alcoholic spirits. One way to celebrate VA Archives Month is by participating in the REMIX contest.
