To celebrate International Archives Week 2021 Ruth Paley and Margaret Procter, the editors of Archives and Comma, have selected a series of articles exploring this year’s theme, Empowering Archives. The articles will be free to read until 14th June 2021.
Published on behalf of the British Records Association, Archives focuses on the needs of archive users (both active and prospective) by providing information about the whereabouts, interpretation and historical significance of records in all media. It publishes essays, commentaries, case studies and reports on all aspects of the care, preservation, accessibility and use of archives.
Comma, International Journal on Archives is the chief serial publication of the International Council on Archives. Content of the journal includes congress and conference proceedings, reports and studies from ICA bodies (branches and sections) and special thematic issues. The common focus of each issue is the research, administration, and development of archives and the archival profession on a worldwide basis.
Archives and Comma articles free to read until 14th June 2021.
