October 4th is Ask An Archivist Day! We’ll be diligently tending our Twitter account (@ucsf_archives) and responding to questions about our collections, our jobs, or anything else to do with the stewardship of historical material. Tag your questions with #AskAnArchivist to join the conversation.
For example, you could ask:
Have you found any interesting ephemera or artifacts in the AIDS History Project collections? #AskAnArchivist
And we’d say:
Yes, lots. For instance, the papers of epidemiologist Donald Francis include a 12th World AIDS Conference condom and Stop AIDS t-shirt.
#AskAnArchivist Day is part of our October Archives Month programming. Learn more about other upcoming events here.
