One of the primary responsibilities of the State Archives is to preserve historically significant materials by preventing or slowing down their deterioration to prevent key information from being lost. The State Archives is again participating in Preservation Week to help build partnerships, help raise awareness about preservation, and to connect to the general public about preservation activities and where to look for preservation expertise.
The State Archives is collaborating with the State Library to conduct a social media campaign, daily preservation trivia question, exhibits, hosting a digital preservation webinar viewing, and posting additional blog posts on preservation tips and activities at the State Archives. For more information on our Preservation Week activities please see the Preservation Week flyer.
