This year to celebrate Archives Month 2008, the University of Kentucky's Archives has several virtual exhibits on display at the Hub http://www.uky.edu/Libraries/lib.php?lib_id=17 in Young Library.

Other events happening around the state can be viewed at the Kentucky Archives Month web site http://archivesmonth.ky.gov/calendar.htm.
American Archives Month is a collaborative effort by professional organizations and repositories around the nation to highlight the importance of records of enduring value. Archivists are professionals who assess, collect, organize, preserve, maintain control of, and provide access to information that has lasting value, and they help people find and understand the information they need in those records.
