What is an archive, anyway?

In October — which is American Archives Month — and November, archivists Robin Heise, Scott Sanders and Dorothy Smith will answer this and other questions as they present two educational sessions on archives, detailing how organizations can preserve documents that tell their stories.

The two sessions will be held Thursdays, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, beginning at 7 p.m., in the Coretta Scott King Center on the Antioch College campus.
