The Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2018. To mark this milestone, the AAO is publishing an organizational history book, In Pursuit of the Archival Endeavour: The Story of the Archives Association of Ontario. This book examines the association from its earliest roots to its future directions. We are launching a crowdfunding campaign to support the design, printing, and binding of the book, and this is an opportunity to obtain a copy of the book while demonstrating your support.
In Pursuit of the Archival Endeavour is a valuable resource for past and present AAO members interested in the history of the organization, and it has academic value for anyone studying archival networks and archival associations. It is the first comprehensive history of a Canadian provincial archival association. The narrative stretches back to the earliest chapter organizations that were formed in Ontario, providing context for how the profession has changed over the past forty years.
