The Memory Bank: Maryland State Archives Community Preservation Day
Date and Time: Monday, July 17, 2023 from 10:00am to 2:00pm
Location: Maryland State Archives, 350 Rowe Blvd., Annapolis, MD 21401
The Maryland State Archives will be hosting a Community Preservation Day on July 17th from 10:00am to 2:00pm in Annapolis, MD. Through this program, we invite members of the local community to preserve their documents, photos, and letters through digital imaging. Archivists will work with community members to describe and scan their items, so that they may take home both their original materials in free archival storage containers and receive the resulting digital copies as well. We ask that the participants also share digital copies of their items with the Archives in order to collaboratively create a permanent electronic collection that allows everyone to see themselves in the Archives. The Archives will include these images in a publicly accessible digital series within its Special Collections to document and share community history. Please help us create a community Memory Bank of our shared heritage.
The first Community Preservation Day will be held on Monday, July 17th from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Pre-registration is required, so that staff and scanning equipment will be available for all our participants. Space is limited, so we request that guests sign up early and inform us if they need to cancel so that we can accommodate anyone on the waiting list. We will plan other preservation days in the future.
