International Archives Day 2018

It’s that time year again to celebrate International Archives Day (IAD)- June 9, 2018. Here’s the official announcement from the International Council on Archives (ICA) President, David Fricker:


As you noticed, the theme of this year’s event is “Archives: Governance, Memory and Heritage” that is based on the ICA Yaoundé Conference 2018 which will take place in Yaounde, Cameroon from 26 to 28 November 2018.
