The International Archives day is celebrated annually on 9 June.
There is a call to send a photo of archives, celebrating the treasures of archives, on that day.
“Help us celebrate International Archives Day on 9th June 2014, by sending us a copy of an archive image linked to the locality in which you work. The image will be uploaded onto a site specially developed by the International Council on Archives’ local, municipal and territorial group of archivists. The site (http://www.internationalarchivesday.org/ ) will go live on 9th June.
To participate, please send a jpeg image of your document to Mies Langelaar in Rotterdam, at the following address: Langelaar M. (Mies), m.langelaar@Rotterdam.nl.
You should also add two sentences: one describing the document you have selected and another one containing a message to the international archival community. We would also be grateful if you could pass this message on to other archivists in your country.
We look forward to sharing your treasures with colleagues around the world.”
