Today’s records can also help tomorrow’s businesses to be smarter, more efficient and more strategic by using core information for clever reuse and analysis. But before they can serve any of these purposes in the future, we really need to protect and manage our archival records today.
Archives are really important. And today they really do need proactive identification, care and management from their creation to ensure they are going to be around for as long as our society needs to use them.
So let’s celebrate Archives Day on 9 June. Let’s treasure the amazing archival records we have and plan for the safeguarding and maintenance of our archival records into the future.
