About Archives Awareness Week
Recognizing the need to document and preserve the development and unique heritage of Tampa and its government, the City of Tampa Archives was founded in 1987.
Archives Awareness Week was established in 1992 by the City of Tampa Archives Advisory Committee. During this week, local archives come together to present their collections through exhibits and programs that convey the value of archives in the identification, preservation, and conservation of historic records.
Archives and Records is a division of the City Clerk’s Office. For more information and a full list of programs, visit www.tampa.gov/aaw.
