Connecticut Archives Month

Governor Ned Lamont has issued a proclamation recognizing October 2023 as Connecticut Archives Month. This annual event is an opportunity to raise awareness about the value of Connecticut’s historical records and archives. It also recognizes the work of archivists, paraprofessionals, and dedicated volunteers who assess, collect, organize, preserve, and provide access to historical information that protect rights and support cultural identities.

The Connecticut State Historical Records Advisory Board has led the initiative on Connecticut Archives Month since 2005. Activities include an Archives Month poster highlighting images and documents from a variety of repositories. This year’s Archives Month poster is about archives make transparent public policy and the evolution of legislation, law enforcement and the legal profession.

For the thirteenth consecutive year, the State Library will post announcements of activities by historical societies, museums, libraries and archives on its website. If your organization is planning to host an Archives Month event, workshop, conference, or exhibit, please contact Assistant State Archivist Allen Ramsey at
