Happy International Archives Day 2014!

Archives around the world are currently celebrating International Archives Day (IAD).

I wonder what is going on in the many archives of the Pacific Islands. Of course, they are a day ahead and might have already celebrated this fine day. I will do my best to collect IAD events from my colleagues in the region.

In the meantime check out this Website that is dedicated to IAD from around the world. You can view it in English, French and Spanish. I also noticed that in the upper, right hand corner there is a “View Photos” tabs. Definitely worth browsing.

Enjoy the 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.
