The archival, records, and data landscape in the 21st century is changing public expectations, changing how we do our work, what constitutes credible evidence, and how we protect our holdings. It is time for our profession to discuss, reflect, and challenge existing practices to explore and expand the critical role played by archives and information professionals in 21st century knowledge societies.  

The ICA Abu Dhabi Congress, Enriching Knowledge Societies, will be an opportunity for the global archives profession to share innovative ideas and research and for colleagues from allied and other professions to join the discussion at this important event. The 21st century information challenges do not simply belong to archives and records professionals; they belong to everyone.  

Let’s share ideas across professions and build networks to enrich our knowledge societies!
