                                Archive Awareness Campaign 2004 - July
Update

Archive Awareness Campaign is run jointly by The National Council on
Archives, the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council and The National
Archives.  It aims to demonstrate the treasures held by archives across the
UK to new and experienced users.

What's happening in 2004?

The theme of Archive Awareness Campaign in 2004 is Routes to Roots so
archives will be running events about family history, gardening, botany,
travel, transport and much more throughout the year.

Events are already being registered by archives across the country.  To give
you a taster of what will be happening if you haven't planned your AAC
activities yet:

        *       The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust will be holding an
exhibition throughout October, November and December called "Wheels around
the World", which will celebrate the spirit of expedition using a
combination of artefacts, photographs and moving film.
        *       Wolverhampton Archives & Local Studies is offering free
family history courses, especially designed for beginners, from September to
December.
        *       Cumbria Archive Service will demonstrate the changing face
of Barrow through an exhibition of historic maps, photographs and other
sources to be based at Tescos supermarket in Barrow in October and November.


If you are not planning an event specifically for Archive Awareness Campaign
why not brand your existing activities with the Archive Awareness logo
(available at www.archiveawareness.com) and register them on the site?

Other national campaigns running in the autumn include The Big Draw in
October (www.drawingpower.org.uk) and Family Learning Week, 11-17 October
(www.familylearningweek.com)  Does your AAC event fit into one of these
campaigns too?

Registering!
If you haven't already done so, now is the time to register your event on
the website www.archiveawareness.com  The sooner you register the more
listings you can expect for your event in various publications.  Upon
registration you will be prompted to request promotional material so make
sure you get your order in!  If you have any queries about registering
please contact Lucy Fulton, Archive Awareness Campaign officer: Tel 020 8392

The BBC is planning a major family history series for this winter and to
coincide with this a National Family History Day will take place on Sunday 5
December (date TBC).  Over 40 events, run by local BBC radio stations, will
take place in public spaces across the country on this day and we will be
asking for your help with these in the near future.  You might be able to
help with "Ask the Experts" sessions, run workshops or help with internet
taster sessions.  This is a great opportunity to publicise your skills as
archive professionals and your organisation.  Mark the date in your diary
and we will give you more details as soon as possible!

On This Day, a daily feature which ran in Metro newspaper every weekday
during Archive Awareness Month last year, will run again this November.  We
are now looking for interesting/ topical stories from the archives relating
to each weekday in November.  Social history stories such as the first
cash-point or the introduction of cats eyes onto British roads are more in
keeping with Metro's style than anniversaries of great battles or the
acquisition of foreign territory so please concentrate your efforts in this
area!  Please send your suggestions, on no more than one side of A4, with a
scanned image of relevant documents if available, to
