2023 Theme: Sparking Curiosity: Demystifying Digital Collections

The realm of digital collections and spaces can be overwhelming. From obsolete file based media to new asset management and online exhibit platforms, there is a learning curve for all of us. The 2023 Georgia Archives Month theme “Sparking Curiosity: Demystifying Digital Collections” encourages learning new skills and seeking out advice from colleagues who have been on this path before. By showcasing projects at various stages, archivists can seek out collective insight to empower themselves and others in our community.

The Georgia Archives Month Committee requests images for our 2023 theme. Photos can include working on projects, receiving physical formats (such as floppy disks, thumb drives) in a collection, screenshots of work in progress, etc.

Please send along the following with your submission:

  • a high-resolution .tiff of the image
  • caption
  • citation information

What is Archives Month?

Archives Month is a way to celebrate the value of Georgia’s historical records, publicize the many ways historical records enrich our lives, and recognize those who maintain our communities’ historical records. This is the ideal time to call attention to your organization or local government, and its work in preserving Georgia’s documentary heritage. The celebration will be publicized across the state through a Governor’s proclamation, a downloadable poster designed for cultural institutions across the state, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, newspaper articles, and events at various repositories.

How Can I Celebrate?

We encourage you to think of ways in which your organization or local government can celebrate Archives Month in your community. Create an exhibit, host a reception, give tours, write articles, or develop special programs – let your imagination be the limit! To help you, the Society of American Archivists (SAA) has created a web page with several resources that include a sample press release. For additional ideas, please see previous years’ activities pages at GAM past activities and the Council of State Archivists (CoSA). If you will provide information on your planned activity, we will be happy to help publicize your event on the Georgia Archives Month Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds. To submit information about your planned event, please send them to

Georgia Archives Month partners with the Society of Georgia Archivists, but maintains a separate identity with a specific mission. We have no operating budget and depend entirely upon donations from sponsors to carry out this important work.
