International Archives Day (09/06)

International Archives Day, celebrated annually on June 9, was established by the International Council on Archives (ICA) in November 2007 at the General Assembly in Quebec (Canada).

The date for the holiday was not chosen by chance - it was on this day in 1948 that the UIA was founded by the decision of UNESCO and under its auspices. The date of formation of this organization was defined as the International Day of Archives, and this first holiday, which took place in 2008, became at the same time the 60th anniversary of the founding of the ISA.

The International Council of Archives is a professional organization of the global archival community that promotes the preservation, development and use of the world's archival heritage. It is a neutral non-governmental organization funded by its members from many archives around the world. To date, the ISA has about 1.5 thousand members from more than 190 countries.
