Explore Your Archives Thunderclap and More

Explore Your Archives is a joint campaign run by The National Archives of the United Kingdom and the Archives and Records Association, UK & Ireland. Similar to American Archives Month, Explore Your Archives seeks to promote the preservation of our cultural heritage and raise awareness of archives as a unique community resource.

As part of Explore Your Archives, on Monday, November 16, 2015, archives across the globe are being asked to join the #ExploreArchives Thunderclap, simultaneously promoting archives through social media in a virtual flashmob.

In addition to the Thunderclap, November 16-20, 2015, will feature various themes for archives to showcase some of their interesting and unique items through social media.
