Reblogged from: SABC Media Libraries: Join archives in search of World War 1 material on 10 June 2014...: #WW1archives @followanarchive @askanarchivists 

The yearly International Archives Day are celebrated on 9 June, but because it falls on public holidays, the Twitter event has been moved to 10 June.

Karen du Toit:

For International Archives Day on Sunday, 9 June 2013.
There is a promotion going on on social media to promote a Goodledoodle for International Archives Day, something that has never been done before.

The focus is on archives for 9 June for International Archives Day as well, with the hashtag #savearchives.

 

I love being an archivist, and get totally lyrical about finding an interview with an important (or  even not so important) person in history: or that “lost” programme; or listening to material from the previous century…

#followanarchive: Googledoodle for International Archives Day 2013?

#followanarchive: Googledoodle for International Archives Day 2013? | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
WE REALLY WANT GOOGLE TO PICK UP ON THIS – SO PLEASE HELP US PROMOTE THE IDEA! 


In 2011 and 2012 we celebrated International Archives Day on June 9th by doing a worldwide #AskArchivists / #FollowAnArchive event on Twitter. We would like to do it again – if archives and archivists support the idea. But this year we would like the day to be extra special.

During the past years, Google has used variations on their logo to draw attention to people and causes worth noticing. Among the doodles are little works of art highlighting things as different as New Year, Chaplins Birthday, Opening of the Arcropolis Museum, Singapore Art Festival and National Library Week. But it seems, that there has never been an doodle on archives.

Please help to share to promote for a Googledoodle on 9 June 2013
