International Archives DayExport this event to calendar

Friday, June 9, 2017 — 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM GMT

International Archives Day (IAD) is celebrated around the world to help people understand why it is important to support archives and the archival profession. People can be confused about what an archives is and there is a misconception that the material we hold is for internal use only, is difficult to access and is only for historians.[1] IAD helps to demystify archives and dispel these misconceptions.

Celebrating this year’s theme “Archives, Citizenship and Interculturalism”, the University of Waterloo Library’s Special Collections & Archives department would like to invite members from the UWaterloo community to meet with us and learn more about our varied collections that showcase the intercultural history of Waterloo, and the world.

Title page

A book of prayers and catechism for the use of the Montagnais Indians by Jean Baptiste de La Brosse, a Jesuit missionary. From the Sol Eisen Collection of Canadiana. Call number B2189.
