Our weekly roundup of archives-related news from around the globe

Conferences and CFPs

The ICA Section on University and Research Institution Archives (SUV) is pleased to announce that its 2017 Conference will be in Riga, Latvia near the end of August.  As with past SUV conferences the meeting will have a thematic focus that will accommodate a broad variety of archival institutions while it also opens the possibility for dialogue with the research community.  This year’s conference theme builds from our recent affiliation with folklore archivists while staying connected to methodological developments in the archival profession.
