Issues finding your documents? Keep calm – the 9th June is International Archives Day! 

International Archives Day aims to raise awareness amongst organisations regarding the importance of archiving media, classifying different types of documents, and managing retention periods.

What does “archives” mean?

Archives/records include information of different types, age or support that are produced by organisations as part of their activity. Archives must be maintained by organisations but also by people as evidence and trace in case of control or dispute. They may also contribute to the future decisions of an entity through data analytics. Therefore, proper preservation of records is required.
