Awareness raising and advocacy for records and archives

© Archives départementales de Maine et Loire, Coralie Pilard, 2014


This category combines raising awareness of the value of archives and advocating for their management and use. Awareness raising addresses the role of records and archives in society, the value of managing documentary evidence effectively, and protecting records and archives to support accountability and foster and enhance individual and collective identity and memory. It includes discussion of the Universal Declaration on Archives, International Archives Day, the relationship between human rights and recordkeeping; and other central records and archives issues of importance to the wider public. Advocacy for records and archives includes identification of appropriate technology and strategies and the use of social media and other dissemination tools. It covers making the case for archives and records management to a range of stakeholders as well as publicity and media campaigning, internal advocacy in support of better recordkeeping practice for current and semi-current records and working with related sectors such as museums and libraries.
