International Archives Day 2014

It’s coming, and it’s coming fast- International Archives Day on June 9, 2014. As you may recall, many archives in the Pacific Islands celebrated the day in fine fashion last year. These included archives in Samoa, Solomon Islands and Tonga- just to name a few.

The International Council on Archives (ICA) will be keeping track of festivities around the world on that day. You can check for updated information on their Webpage.

International Museum Day was a big success a couple of weeks ago and many museums throughout the Pacific Islands celebrated on that day. Hopefully, the archives in the region will be just as active and observing on June 9th. I’ll keep you posted on any activities as I hear from them.

Happy International Archives Day!

About islandculturearchivalsupport

Island Culture Archival Support (ICAS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of records pertaining to the cultural identity of island peoples in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia whose national and public archives, libraries, cultural centers, and business organizations are underprivileged, underfunded, and understaffed. The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
