Celebrate with the Saskatchewan's Archives and Archivists at the 5th Annual ARCHIVES WEEK!!!
To honour our province's rich and vibrant documentary heritage and the tremendous work that has gone into ensuring its ongoing preservation, and to promote the continuing importance of archives in our communities, the Saskatchewan Council of Archives and Archivists (SCAA) has once again declared a province-wide Archives Week for February 1-7, 2010.
While events are scheduled throughout the province, here are the ones pertaining to Regina:
Tuesday, February 2, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM.
Learn more about how the Archives' collections and services support the teaching, research and administrative functions of the University community. Join a behind-the-scenes tour of the Archives' storage facility which houses over 2.5 kilometers of records. See oURspace, the University's online institutional repository, in action. Enjoy displays of items from the Archives' holdings, including a special feature on the collections of the Regina Five. Refreshments will be served.
Wednesday, February 3, 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Join guest commentators for an evening of short films from archives in Saskatchewan. See ground-breaking research from the 1930s, witness archival documents coming to life in A Curious Friendship, A Chaplain’s War & a film about the politically charged 1936 Olympics. Cap off the evening by being swept up in A Prairie Romance.
Thursday, February 4, 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Discover Saskatchewan's past - both playful & profound - with appearances by Mary Balogh, Gail Bowen, Roger Currie, J.C. Garden, Rod McDonald, Jill Morgan & Scott Schultz. Reception to follow.
