International Archives Day

So, its international archives day today. This is its second year and it is held on the 9th of June as that was the day in 1948 that the International Council on Archives was founded at UNESCO in Paris.

The day is mainly about raising awareness of archives and records within your country. The ICA believes that "as programmes for raising public awareness of archives are organized simultaneously in an increasing number of countries, a greater sense of international solidarity will be fostered among the participants."

Here's to international solidarity!
