Saskatchewan Archives Week
February 2 - 8, 2009
To honour Saskatchewan’s heritage and the work that has gone into ensuring its preservation, the Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists (SCAA) and archives across the province have planned several special events during Archives Week in Saskatchewan, February 2 - 8, 2009, to promote the essential and ongoing role of archives in our society. This will be the fourth annual Archives Week in Saskatchewan, made possible with financial support from the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation through SaskCulture Inc.
During Archives Week, archivists and archival institutions from across the province showcase the interesting and unique records that reside in their collections. It is during this week that the SCAA and its members interact with people who would have not otherwise considered visiting an archive.
They profile the vital role that the documentary records of individuals, families, organizations, businesses and governments play in developing an understanding of ourselves through academic and popular research.
There are a number of events happening throughout the province in celebration of Archives Week. Click here to see the complete list of events.
