American Archives Month 2012

2 10 2012

American Archives Month is celebrated every October to promote the value of archives and archivists.  The Michigan State University Archives & Historical Collections (UAHC) is responsible for collecting and preserving the historical records of the nation’s pioneer land-grant university.  In essence, the university archives is the memory of MSU.  Our collections contain documents, photographs, scrapbooks, diaries, and audio and visual recordings on a variety of topics, including athletics, student life, and Michigan History.  UAHC is a valuable resource for the MSU community, historians, publishers and producers, K-12 students, teachers, genealogists, and the general public.

To celebrate American Archives Month, the MSU Archives & Historical Collections is holding a trivia contest that focuses on the history of student organizations at MSU.  The contest is open to MSU faculty, staff and students; MSU alumni; and the greater Lansing community.  This contest will end on Wednesday, October 31.  Three winners will be chosen at random from among the correct entries and will be notified the following week.  This year’s prize is a goodie bag of Archives swag!   The contest is available online at:

Good luck and thank you for playing!!
