October is Archives Month

Archives Month is an annual, month-long observance of the agencies and people responsible for maintaining and making available the archival and historical records of our nation, state, communities, and people. Archives serve as the memory of our nation, and by celebrating, we recognize and give legitimacy to the enduring value of American records and America’s archives.
We encourage you to check out our Instagram account where we'll be highlighting treasures from the Medical Center Archives collection all month long. This month the Society of North Carolina Archivists theme is North Carolina Travel, Tourism, and Vacation! 
Additionally on October 13, 2021, archivists around the country will take to Twitter to respond to questions tweeted with the hashtag #AskAnArchivist for #AskAnArchivistDay
Throughout October, we invite you to join us in celebrating the importance of archives as we highlight the history of Duke Health!
