A lot of campaigns are coming up during the International Archives Week 2019.
The International Council on Archives (@ICArchiv) introduces a week to celebrate International Archives Day.
The Grande Finale on June 9, International Archives Day, will be organized by the Archives and Records Association Scotland (@ARAScot) with an edition of their successful 'something' campaign.
The Twitter initiatives @FollowAnArchive (2010) and @AskArchivistst (2011) are happy to support the ICA initiative and the ARAScott initiative.
So we will not, like we have done from 2012 untill 2018, organize an event on Twitter on International Archives Day ourselves.
The following introduction of International Archives Week is a copy of the text on the website of ICA:
Celebrate with #DesigningYourArchives in #IAW2019
The International Council on Archives invite you to celebrate the International Archives Week 2019 on the theme of the conference Adelaide 2019, 'Designing the Archive' which will take place in South Australia from 21 to 25 October.
From Monday 3 to Sunday 9 June 2019, celebrate the International Archives Week in your institution, your company or your department. Use this global event for archivists and records managers in order to make known the role of archives and share your experience and the importance of your work. Show that the archives profession is fun, inclusive, varied and that your expertise is helpful to everyone
How are you designing your archives for the 21st century?
Designing the Archive is about putting people at the centre of what we do. The campaign theme will focus on how in the 21st Century our profession -data and information managers, records managers and archivists- can provides opportunities for human-centred design approaches to ensure we deliver benefits to citizens, customers, stakeholders and communities. This cross cuts, not only geographical boundaries, but sectors and industries; we want to hear from archivists representing architecture to fashion, engineering to environmental management, public-sector and private-sector.
From paper to digital, how are you designing your archives for the 21st century? Let’s challenge what people think we do! Help us tell the world what archives in the 21st Century are about!
Share with us your vision of archives and your profession, and show us how you will celebrate archivists’ achievements from Monday 3 to Sunday 9 June 2019!
Don't forget to use the hashtags #IAW2019 and #DesigningYourArchives !
'Something' on #IAD19Something big, something amazing, something old, something weird... We keep all kinds of stuff in our archives worthwhile keeping it!
The Archives and Records Association Scotland introduced their #IAD19 campaign for June 9 during the ARA Innovative Social Media for Archives Event #ArchiveSocialMedia at the University of Stirling on May 23, 2019. We trust it will be as good as their #Archive30 campaigns in 2018 and 2019!
May 31, 2019 ARAScot released their list of topics. Tweet on June 9, International Archives Day, every hour something of the list to show a little something from your collections. Don't forget to use the hashtag #IAD19 !
We are very much looking forward to all your contributions!
Have a great International Archives Week and International Archives Day!
