what archivists do

#AskAnArchivist Day October 5

We’ll be participating in #AskAnArchivist Day again this year on Twitter. On October 5 talk directly to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s archivists about what we do, why it’s important and, of course, the interesting materials with which we work! What are you most interested in learning about from our archives and archivists?

How Does It Work?

Ask questions tweeted with the hashtag #AskAnArchivist, and we’ll respond to all questions posed to us. As we get closer to the date, we’ll let you know which of our archivists will be monitoring the account at what time, so that if you have a question specific to one of them you can ask them directly!

We look forward to hearing from you on October 5!

What do archivists do? What do you think is the coolest item in your collection? Why are archives important?

Want to know more about the Museum and what our archives hold? Tomorrow is Ask An Archivist Day and we will be answering your questions from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Follow along on Twitter and send us your questions.
