Thank you for visiting the former website of the Oregon Archives Crawl!

The Oregon Archives Crawl was organized by an informal group of archivists in the Portland-metro area to promote the connection between people and archives and have fun at the same time. The Crawl was held for three years (2010-2012) and included nearly 30 participating archives and special collections each year. People were invited to travel between four host institutions in order to visit with all of the archives who had tables at each stop. An After-Party was held each year to encourage a relaxed opportunity to chat.

After three successful years, the organizers have decided to take a hiatus. While there won’t be a Crawl for 2013, many archives and special collections are planning individual events to celebrate American Archives Month in October. A calendar of events will be created and posted here closer to October. This is a great opportunity to get to know your regional archives better and to visit the collections!

The Oregon Archives Crawl planning committee would to thank all of the people who joined us for the Crawl! We hope you enjoyed your time visiting with us as much as we enjoyed introducing you to our archives.
