Texas Archives Month 2015

Monday, October 5, 2015 • Austin, Texas • News Release

In October 2015, Texas will join archival repositories across the nation to celebrate Archives Month and promote the preservation of our country's documentary heritage. Archives Month in Texas aims to celebrate the value of Texas' historical records, to publicize the many ways these records enrich our lives, to recognize those who maintain our communities' historical records, and to increase public awareness of the importance of preserving historical treasures and making them available for use by present and future generations.

The theme of the 2015 Texas Archives Month poster is Texas Takes Action to Preserve our Moving Memories. The poster spotlights the challenges of preserving film collections and the efforts of archivists, librarians, and film preservationists to protect our 'moving memories' from degradation and loss.

Over one thousand copies of the poster will be mailed to archival repositories, libraries, county historical commissions and elected officials throughout the state to arrive by early October. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to request a poster, please e-mail us. Supplies are limited.
