Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of International Archives Day.

International Archives Day is intended to raise awareness of the importance of records and archives, in order to make it understood that records and archives provide the foundation for people's rights and identity.

Also, it is a time to raise the private and public sectors' awareness of the necessity of preserving archives for the long term and of providing access to them. 

During the 2004 International Congress in Vienna, 2000 attending participants adopted a resolution requesting that the United Nations (UN) designates a specific day to mark the importance and value of archives. 

Subsequently, it was decided at the 2007 International Council on Archives (ICA) Annual General Meeting that June 9th would be celebrated as International Archives Day. The date, June 9, was chosen to commemorate the date ICA was created under the auspices of UNESCO in 1948.
