SLMT and International Archives Day

Following the great success of recent International Archives Days we would like to invite all archives everywhere to send a picture to the ICA/SLMT Facebookpage.This picture should represent what is most important to them in their archive in 2018. It doesn’t have to be a building, or a manuscript – the picture could capture the essence of the archive through an event, an exhibition or an activity.

We expect diversity, quirkiness, colour, vitality and powerful images. If previous years are anything to go by we know you will deliver amazing pictures for all to see and share as we unite to celebrate International Archives Day 2018 on 9 June.

Please send images to for the period 9 May to 9 June 2018, or post the image yourself on our timeline

We encourage all members who send photographs for inclusion on the SLMT Facebook page to participate in the broader IAD event by submitting pictures of their IAD events to the site

Help us promote the importance of archives to the world!
