Since 2006, American Archives Month has given the profession an opportunity to tell (or remind) people that items that are important to them are being preserved, cataloged, cared for, and made accessible by archivists. This year, American Archives Month is doubly significant: SAA President Kathleen Roe has kicked off the Year of Living Dangerously for Archives, encouraging archivists to take concerted actions to increase awareness of and advocate for archives. Her first call to action—Demonstrate the Values of Archives—echoes the efforts that many archivists and repositories are taking this October to celebrate American Archives Month.

To help you participate in American Archives Month and the Year of Living Dangerously for Archives, SAA has provided archivists with practical information and great ideas to help make your archives program more visible. Plus, read how your colleagues across the country are celebrating, and email saahq@archivists.org to tell us how you are commemorating the month.
