Show your love for archives with SAA-UW tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 12) in MGH commons 12-2pm and online all day– and all weekend, if you feel like it!

We have plenty of public domain images from the digital archives collections at UW and NYPL to get you started. There is also a folder for sharing finished valentines (you’ll need a UW login). It’s all in the Archives Valentines Google Drive folder.

In the MGH commons, we’ll have supplies for making your own archives-themed valentines. Take a picture of your valentine or upload your digital file on social media with ‪#‎ArchivesValentine‬. (You can post it on our Facebook page, too!)

Or, just stop by to grab some candy on your way to class!

Find inspiration from some of last year on the National Archives’s Tumblr:…/archival-valentin…/chrono.

A couple of examples:
