The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc., along with hundreds of organizations in the archives community across New York State, will celebrate New York Archives Week, October 7-13, 2012, with special commemorative activities throughout New York City. New York Archives Week is an annual celebration aimed at informing the general public of the diverse array of archival materials available in the Metropolitan New York City region.
Among the many activities free and open to the public will be open houses, lectures, workshops and behind-the-scenes tours of archives throughout the city. These special events are designed to celebrate the importance of historical records and to familiarize interested organizations and the public with a wealth of fascinating archival materials illuminating centuries of New York City history and culture.
New York Archives Week’s premier event is the ART Awards Ceremony, the only awards program in the Metropolitan New York City region dedicated to honoring the work of archivists and those who support archival programs.
