Nominations for the 2011 Governor’s Archives Awards are being accepted by the Wisconsin Historical Records Advisory Board (WHRAB) and the Wisconsin Historical Society through Friday, April 1st. The three awards recognize archival achievement, innovation, and advocacy work with historic documents. These awards honor individuals, organizations, and formal programs that make distinctive contributions to historical records preservation and access. Award winners will be announced in June and will be formally presented an award during Archives Month in October 2011. Last year’s award winners include the La Crosse Public Library Archives Department; UW Forest and Wildlife Ecology Lab in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Science Services and Wisconsin Natural Resources magazine; and Susan Braden of the Hedberg Public Library.
