October is American Archives Month and Wisconsin is joining in on the celebration.  The Wisconsin Historical Society is supporting the state theme "Scrapbook Wisconsin". The UW-Madison student chapter of the Society of American Archivists has established the Archives Month Blog to help promote Archives Month. Archives are essential in the preservation and understanding of library history and the Wisconsin Library Heritage Center is pleased to recognize the importance of archives this month. There are many possible ways that libraries could help celebrate Archives Month. High on the list are programs and exhibits. These could focus on the library's own history and archives or those of the community in which the library is located. If not this year, why not plan for next year.
