Got a burning question only an archivist could answer? Here’s a great opportunity
to ask it: On Ask Archivists Day, a worldwide Twitter event taking place June 9, you
can pose an archival question for archivists to address.
Start by following @AskArchivists
on Twitter (you’ll need a Twitter account, of course). Then on June 9, tweet your
question and include the hashtag #AskArchivists. You can direct your question to any
archivist who’s joining in, or to a specific participating archive—for example, including
@USNatArchives in your tweet directs your question to the US National Archives.
archives in the United States and Canada are listed here (the list is still growing).
So far, they include the National Archives, Library of Congress, New York Public Library,
North Carolina State Archives, Association des archivistes du Québec, Nova
Scotia Archives and Records Management, plus many college and university libraries.
