Celebrate Archives Month by Honoring the Accomplishments of an Ohio Archival Institution

The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board Achievement Award recognizes significant
accomplishments in preserving and improving access to historical records, in any format, by
an Ohio archival institution.

All Ohio institutions responsible for archival records that provide public access to at least a
portion of their collections are eligible. Eligible accomplishments include recent special
projects or on-going programs that:

  • build significant collections
  • implement successful preservation strategies
  • enhance access to archives
  • develop effective digitization programs

Preference will be given to projects or programs that can be adapted for use by other
institutions.

Because the award recognizes institutional achievements, individuals are not eligible.
Departments employing members of OHRAB are not eligible, but other departments in their
institutions are eligible.

Nominating letters should be no longer than two pages, 12-pt, single spaced, describing the
institution’s program/project along with its goals, accomplishments, and significance. Each
must include the nominee’s institutional name along with a contact person’s name, mailing
and email addresses, and phone number.
