CAL – Item # G-30 – Area Archives

Leave a comment

G-30WHAT I LEARNED:  Much like a library’s collection, archives grow continuously & are typically limited by physical space.  This Guideline focuses on the preservation of Al-Anon’s local history, but only from a standpoint of keeping paper items & audio tapes which means we are relying on the Area Archivist (or a designated committee) to determine what to keep & what to eventually throw out (ala Tradition #9).  Well, I don’t like any history being lost (perhaps that’s my own personal issues with letting go), so I would have much rather seen this Guideline put some emphasis on digitizing & improved access/openess of our shared past within the fellowship.   Just saying

**BONUS: WSO Archives’ motto: “Look to the Past to Protect the Future” surrounding the image of Stepping Stones appears on this Guideline & only 1 other piece of literature…  (Hint: see AR-2!)

**DOUBLE BONUS: An electronic version of this guideline can now be downloaded directly from the District 6 website by clicking this link: District 6 Website
