What you will find in this resource: 

The 10 November 2011 marked an important day for archives when the 36th Session of the General Conference of UNESCO endorsed the ICA’s Universal Declaration on Archives and today we are going to be looking at how we can use the UDA as a tool to improve understanding and awareness about archives.

This presentation will give an overview about the genesis and origin of the UDA, outline the history of its development, talk about the challenges involved in putting together the document; look at the aims of the UDA; and then go through the text of the document.
