All Smithsonian archival units, Smithsonian Institution Archives, and Smithsonian Institution Libraries set up information tables during the fair to share their resources. They provided brochures, bookmarks, posters, and other materials describing their collections, and answered questions pertaining to their repository. The public was also treated to demonstrations on successfully searching the Collections Search Center database for archival collections.
This year, a special Archives Month page was created and hosted by Smithsonian Archives of American Art, which streamed our Lecture Series live. If you are just learning of our month long activities, we encourage you to visit the Archives Month page, and other blogs from across the Smithsonian to learn about and explore our amazing and diverse collections.
