DFW Archives Bazaar on the World Wide Web
Join archivists, museum curators, librarians, and history professionals from all across the DFW area during the month of October. Professionals from institutions like UNT, SMU, UT-Dallas, Fort Worth and Dallas Public Library, Tarrant County Black Historical and Genealogical Society, The Amon Carter Museum, George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, NARA, and the Sixth Floor Museum (just to name a few) are responsible for helping to preserve the history and culture of communities in North Texas. They will be on our social media channels to share their knowledge and help preserve your history.
What you can see/do/learn:
- Let the professionals show you the cool items that they have in their collections.
- Learn how to preserve and digitize rare materials.
- Learn how to conduct oral histories in your community.
- Learn how to access historic research materials.
Other events during the Bazaar:
During the Bazaar, live Q&A sessions will be hosted on Facebook where archivists will answer questions on preservation, digitization, and anything archives related. A career panel will be hosted as well. Students can learn about archival career options and get advice on schools, programs, and internships.
Learn all about the history of North Texas and the people that help preserve it for the next generation!
