For immediate release.

The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.),
along with hundreds of organizations in the archives community across
New York State, will celebrate the 26th Anniversary of New York
Archives Week, October 5-11, 2014, with special commemorative
activities throughout the New York City Metropolitan area. 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.
One of the premier events of New York Archives Week is the annual
symposium, which will be held on Tuesday, October 7, 2014. This
year’s topic is financial institutions and archives. This encompasses not
just financial institutions such as banks, but also organizations that
maintain or have inherited financial records. Submissions are being
accepted to present at the symposium with a deadline of September 7,
2014. More information can be found on the A.R.T. website.
A.R.T. encourages its member institutions, along with any organizations
that have archival records, to consider hosting an event or program for
New York Archives Week. Please complete our event form to be
included on the A.R.T. New York Archives Week calendar.
