Thanks to everyone who helped us get the word out about the first annual Oregon Archives Crawl and to those who “crawled” between each location. We were thrilled with the steady stream of visitors coming through our door, many of whom had never been to our facility or to any archive.
Here are a few pictures from the day. Enjoy!
Getting up close and personal with the historic exhibit
Perusing the preservation display
Putting history together piece by piece
Touring the closed stacks
And of course getting the Oregon Archives Crawl passport stamped
Thanks to our wonderful presenters who gave real life examples of how they use archives!
