Workshop Overview: In 2015, the Greene County Records Center and Archives in Xenia, Ohio, implemented an educational outreach program consisting of classroom visits as well as online resources that are available to both educators and students. The program aligns local primary source records with state social studies standards while providing local context to national events, movements and trends.

**This program received the 2016 NAGARA Program Excellence Award, the 2016 Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board Archives Achievement Award, and the 2017 Society of Ohio Archivists Merit Award.**

Teachers have raved that this program is an excellent form of outreach to local Greene County schools because it:

  • Students learn about history using records that are “close to home;”
  • Educates students about what a local government archives is and and how they can be used;
  • Showcasing the local records that they preserve.
