IAD15 Is Coming!

What is IAD15, you ask?

Well, it is International Archives Day!

Mark your calendar- June 9, 2015. All around the world archivists will unite on this special day to celebrate the significance and achievements of our profession. As you may recall that in the past few years, we posted lots of events and pictures that took place on IAD at various archives throughout the Pacific Islands. Hopefully, IAD15 will be bigger and better than ever.

Keep an eye on the official IAD link, especially on June 9, 2015, as it is a site that is specifically developed for the occasion.

We will also endeavor to share the happenings at archival organizations throughout the Pacific on this day. Can’t wait!

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.
