October is American Archives Month and we hope you are all thinking of ways to celebrate your own Ohio archives!  You can highlight and share your own archive during Archives Month with things like special talks and programming, exhibits, tours, and more!

You should be receiving (or have received) your Ohio Archives month poster in the mail. We hope you display it proudly in your archive for people to see!

The 2023 theme is Transportation in Ohio.  Thank you again to all those who submitted images for consideration!

In keeping with this year’s poster theme, during October the Advocacy and Outreach Committee will be highlighting transportation-related archives with blog posts on the SOA website.


  • Join us on social media for #AskAnArchivist day on Wednesday, October 11. Follow SOA social media accounts for more information.
  • Archival Spotlights started as a new Archives Month feature in 2022 and we’re continuing to highlight Ohio archives in 2023. See them on the blog under Archival Spotlights.

Other ways to celebrate Archives Month

Hold an Event: If your archive site hasn’t made plans yet to do something to celebrate and acknowledge Archives Month, we encourage you to hold some sort of event (in person or virtual) to let people get to know your archives!
