Thoughts for American Archives Month

As many of you know, I am helping maintain the Franco-American Collection, while we search for a new Coordinator.  I couldn’t let American Archives Month go by without some thoughts on the experience.

Though this is my third time helping out between Coordinators, I continue to be amazed by the community memory contained in the Collection.  I recently came upon, for example, programs for music recitals and ice shows.  These events brought people together.

Such resources can help us create more memories.  The Collection hosts a popular singalong series that still brings people together.  I also invite educators and artists to come and be inspired.

To see some of the Collection’s treasures, check out the catalog or finding aids.  You can like the Collection on Facebook as well.
