As usual, AAO plans to celebrate Archives Awareness Week with our members this year. Given the current situation we know most, if not all, archives are closed to the public and will not be running events. AAO would like to organize a virtual celebration using AAO social media. In honour of our theme "Archives Online", we would like to offer an "Ask an Archivist" event in which a number of people donate some time to respond to questions people tweet, or to chat about what they are doing to maintain a virtual archive presence, what is new in their institution, etc..
We would channel all Q&A through the AAO Twitter account using our hashtag for the week, #2020AAW. More details will be sent out to those interested. If you are comfortable using Twitter and can donate some time to respond to tweets next week between Tuesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 9, please email the Archives Advisor at email@example.com by Thursday, April 2nd.
