ARA Scotland's #ArchiveZ social media campaign
ARA Scotland is now well into its popular 2020 #ArchiveZ campaign, whichit's running across all three of its social media accounts – Twitter,Facebook, and the latest addition, Instagram.
With everything going on in the world just now, vast numbers still working from home and being away from our collections, social media has been a great way to stay connected to one another, and to feel connected to our beloved archives, even from a distance.
ARA Scotland is now well into its popular 2020 #ArchiveZ campaign, which it's running across all three of its social media accounts – Twitter, Facebook, and the latest addition, Instagram.
With a new letter of the alphabet as the 'theme' each week, the campaign is more relaxed than some of ARA Scotland's other campaigns. Archivists and repositories can contribute as much or as little as you like and can include almost anything you can think of from your collections, so long as they match the weekly theme – no matter how tenuous!
The campaign will continue to meander through the alphabet until early November, so there's still so much time to get involved!
So far ARA Scotland has had great contributions and engagement on its social channels both from within the UK and much further afield. The campaign is very flexible and can be interpreted in many different ways for those with no access to their collections, or limited access to previously-digitised materials.
To get involved, use the #ArchiveZ hashtag and follow ARA Scotland on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
