PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has named October to be Archives Month in South Dakota.

Daugaard says that archival institutions have a responsibility to collect and preserve records that document the history of South Dakota and the plains region for present and future generations.

Chelle Somsen, South Dakota state archivist, says the month serves as the time to focus on important records and give recognition to the people and programs who maintain them.

The South Dakota State Historical Society-Archives in October is sponsoring or participating in events that highlight historical records.
