2023 THEME

Archives Month is an annual, month-long observance every October of the repositories and people responsible for maintaining and making available the archival and historical records of our nation, state, communities and people. The events are a celebration of the work that we and our organizations do, but it is also a time to raise public awareness. By holding exhibit openings, workshops, lectures, open houses, and other related events during Archives Month, North Carolina's archives community can make a concerted effort to bring the importance of our profession to our state's citizenry and public leaders.

Any institution or repository responsible for archives and historical records in North Carolina is invited to participate in Archives Month in North Carolina. The Society of North Carolina Archivists (SNCA) sponsors the month and the Archives Month Committee sets the annual theme, designs, prints, and provides posters and bookmarks for repositories, and serves as an information clearinghouse for events.

The Archives Month Committee is pleased to announce the theme for this year is Scandals, Nuisance, Calamity, and Anguish in the Archives.

We want this theme to encompass a broad range of collections items and archival experiences, including local lore, historic events, research room antics, and things that we wish never happened!

Ideas might include North Carolina murder ballads and their subjects, local family scandals, student mishaps/antics on campus, city/town shake ups, spooky stories of ghosts or other supernatural phenomena, and of course experiences in your special collections that caused calamity or anguish.

For more information, please refer to the SNCA Archives Month 2023 email sent via the listserv on July 20. If you did not receive an email, please contact us at
