Today is the last day of International Archives Week, a bit late to be blogging about it but I’ve only just discovered it. As a professional association the International Council on Archives is hardly mass entertainment, but as a lover of libraries and bookshops and all such bookish collections I find its existence interesting.
And in some ways comforting – someone is taking care of our collective memories.
There are lists and maps of events worldwide.
They cover various activities like talks, guided tours, open house, seminars, exhibitions and even parties.
I assume (and hope I’m right) that their work includes archives from the online world. If not our age is going to be very thinly represented.
