Coming to Alberta!

Every year, the ASA celebrates Archives Week which occurs the first week of October.  The purpose of Archives Week is to promote archives.  Our member institutions organize events such as film nights, open houses or workshops. In celebration of the week, the ASA creates an Archives Calendar with images from archives around the province. The ASA would like to thank the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation for making Archives Week possible.

All Archives Week events are open to the public.
