journée internationale des archives

9th of June : International Archives Day

Did you know that?

Since 2008, June 9th  has been declared International Archives Day.

This date celebrates the creation’s anniversary of the International Council on Archives in 1948.

The aim of this day is to raise awareness of archives among the public and decision-makers, to make them actors in the long-term preservation of their data, whatever the medium.

This is the occasion to organize many activities around the world, offering the opportunity to better understand the fundamentals of archiving and to improve the sometimes dusty and archaic perception that people may have.

Happy Archives Day to all the archivists and records managers!
