Join us for the annual Oregon Archives Crawl to explore the year's theme, Changing Attitudes. Archives document how communities, beliefs, practices, and preferences have changed over the years. Historical records and photos can shed new light on common beliefs or explain how things have come to pass. With more than 35 organizations participating, you are guaranteed to discover something new!

Start the Crawl at any of the host locations: City of Portland Archives & Records Center, the Oregon Historical Society or the Multnomah County Library. At each site you'll find representatives from archives, special collections, and heritage organizations. "Passports" are available at each site to help guide you and provide a list of organizations. All are welcome, from professional archivists to vintage photo lovers to scholars to students!
