IN ARCHIVES WE TRUST: Preserving Virginia History for Her People

Archives Week in Virginia celebrates those institutions and individuals that help preserve and make accessible the important records of our actions as citizens, businesses, religious groups, government and society. The work of these institutions and individuals gives us a sense of being part of a larger picture and helps us begin to see ourselves connected to others-family, community, nation or a group defined by ethnicity, religion, work or play.

This year marks the fourth annual state-wide celebration of Archives Week in Virginia. Again, the Library of Virginia, in conjunction with the Virginia Caucus of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) and the Library of Virginia Foundation, have produced a poster commemorating the Commonwealth's archival and special collections repositories and the rich cultural record they protect.

This year's theme, "In Archives We Trust: Preserving Virginia History for Her People", reflects the role of archives in preserving the historical record and serving as the guardians of the Commonwealth’s rich history and cultural heritage. The poster would not have been complete without the contribution of images from institutions across the state, including Arlington County Public Library; Thomas Balch Library; Colonial Williamsburg; George Mason University; The Mariners Museum; Old Dominion University; Roanoke Public Libraries; University of Mary Washington; University of Virginia, Special Collections and Archives, Claude Moore Health Sciences Library and Law Library; Valentine Richmond History Center; Virginia Commonwealth University; Virginia Historical Society; and Wythe County Historical Society.

The Library of Virginia has organized three free noontime talks focusing on the role of archives. Detailed information about these programs may be found by going to our events page, Archives Week 2005 Events. Please join us at these events as we celebrate all Virginians -- and all who contribute to the safekeeping of our documentary heritage.
