June 9 Is International Archives Day

October may be American Archives Month, but JUNE 9 is INTERNATIONAL ARCHIVES DAY. Thanks to sponsorship by the International Council on Archives, you can see what your colleagues from Belgium to the Baltic to Tonga are doing by clicking here (where you can also download an International Archives Day poster). And you can help spread the word about the Universal Declaration on Archives, which recognizes the essential role of archives in supporting administrative accountability and transparency, protecting the rights of individuals and organizations, and forming part of the cultural heritage of society. So on June 9, think globally and act locally!
