Ask An Archivist

Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019, 9 a.m.

From 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., archivists around the country will take to Twitter to answer your questions about any and all things archives. Just tweet a question and include the hashtag #AskAnArchivist. Add the Twitter handle @dcpl if you want to hear from DC Public Library archivists. 

Don’t have a question right away? Search Twitter for #AskAnArchivist and follow along as questions and answers are shared.  

If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can still have your questions answered! E-mail our archivists any time at or call Washingtoniana at 202-727-1213 to hear about how to see our collections in person. 

Ask an Archivist is sponsored by the Society of American Archivists.
