International Archives Week, June 8-14

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.

Introducing the New Library Services Platform

On May 31, 2020, the Ingalls Library and Museum Archives in collaboration with the Digital Innovation and Technology Services team unveiled a brand-new library system. After a diligent selection process, we chose WorldShare Management Services (WMS), a product of OCLC, a global library cooperative located in Dublin, Ohio. In doing so, we are not only improving our technology, but joining a worldwide community of over 600 libraries.
