April has been a busy month—as far as records, books, and information are concerned.
It’s been National Records and Information Management Month (promotion of education about electronic records); Preservation Week (promotion of preservation of personal and family papers); World Book Day on April 23 (a UNESCO event to promote reading); Confederate History Month, and National School Library Month.
The thing that these awareness events have in common is records and their importance, whether in the form of a book, family papers or electronic files on a computer.
“People must know the past to understand the present and face the future.”
~Nellie McClung, Canadian feminist and author
