The poster for Connecticut’s recognition of Archives Month highlights the fragility of our documentary and cultural heritage. Repositories throughout the state, like Archives & Special Collections at UConn, actively acquire materials that document events, actions, individuals and organizations that are Connecticut and its residents to protect, preserve and make it accessible into the future. During Archives Month, everyone is encouraged to visit a repository and learn more. A list of activities being held in the Dodd Research Center, where Archives & Special Collections is located, can be found online.
