As of June 30th, the Ingalls Library and Museum Archives is back, more or less.
With work from home the new normal, workflows have changed in the library and museum archives. While some work has transferred to the home office quite easily, other tasks have not. That introduces an opportunity for new projects for a library and archives staff always eager to serve the mission of the museum.
International Archives week was inaugurated by the International Council on Archives (ICA) as International Archives Day, June 9, 2004. This year’s theme is Archives Empowering Knowledge Societies, a UNESCO initiative. This global goal is to increase access to, and preservation and sharing of information. Knowledge societies are built on four pillars: freedom of expression, universal access to information and knowledge, respect for cultural and linguistic diversity, and quality education.
