Illinois Archives Month is in October each year. The purpose of Illinois Archives Month is to celebrate and promote the rich documentary heritage of Illinois by:
- increasing public awareness of archival materials and repositories.
- focusing on materials in archival repositories that have broad appeal, and
- strengthening ties with regular archives users, as well as introducing new and potential users to archival repositories and the documentary heritage there.
Celebrate the importance of Illinois’ historical documents and recognize those who maintain them.
