Date Friday, October 14, 2011, 10 AM - 5 PM
In honor of American Archives Month, the Smithsonian Archives Fair will highlight vast collections of archival and historical records at the Smithsonian. Staff from over a dozen different archival units will be on hand to showcase some of the Smithsonian's archival treasures as well as current projects and programs. An "Ask the Smithsonian" program will offer timed slots for attendees to consult with experts on how to better care for their own archives-worthy items (pre-registration required). A lecture series throughout the day will spotlight the infinite number of stories waiting to be told through the Smithsonian's archives.
