International Archives Week 2021
The National Archives and Records Service of South Africa in partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Archives will host the 2021 Annual National Archives Awareness Week from 09 -11 June 2021 in KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Archives.
A decision was taken by the International Council on Archives (ICA) that countries should celebrate Archives Week annually in their respective countries. The Archives Week promotes the importance of good record keeping practices and allows members of the public access to archival buildings so as to understand archival functions and services. This celebration of the Annual Archives Week is intended to promote the use of the archives whereby individuals become exposed to how research is conducted at the archives, what services are offered, processes needed to access classified information held by archival institutions, and how exhibitions are done using archival collections.
