Enhancing Collective Memory

File27252014 will be a year of remembrance as Canada prepares to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Municipal, provincial, federal, corporate, community, and historical archives all contain records and important information that can be used to highlight, celebrate, and bring awareness to our collective memories. Could we celebrate communal anniversaries, important dates and people, and watershed moments without archives? How have you used items in your collection to honour an important person, place, or event in your community? Archives are integral to the preservation of our identities and ensuring that history is available, front and centre, during times of celebration and memorialization.

Join us for the 2014 AAO Conference as we learn just how import archives and archival collections are in celebrating our common history!
