A world without records is a world without memory.

Archives are amazing.

Without them we could not study our personal histories or the histories of our communities or nations. There would be no historically rich novels and films. We would know nothing about the lives of our predecessors. We would not be able to revisit controversial or compelling legal cases. 

All who work in the archives sector have come together as never before to raise awareness of archives, their value to society and the impact they have, every day, on individual lives. Through the Explore Your Archive campaign (10-16 November 2014) archivists, record managers and conservators invite you into archives across the UK and Ireland, where the records of your life, your community, your business, your nation and your world are collected, kept safe and made accessible.

We all benefit from archives – often without realising. We want more people to understand and value the richness and diversity of UK and Irish archives. There are so many kinds of archives: in local authorities and governments, in businesses, in schools and universities, in charities, in private houses, in cultural organisations.... All playing their part in keeping information safe and accessible.

On Monday 10 November 2014 we want to celebrate all our wonderful archives and the invaluable work that goes into collecting, keeping and sharing the world’s memory. We hope you will lend us your voice to tell the world how truly exciting, relevant, diverse and fascinating archive collections are.

Explore Your Archive. There is so much to discover.
