Universal Declaration on Archives

In November 2011, the General Conference of UNESCO unanimously adopted a Universal Declaration on Archives.

The Declaration stresses the unique importance of archives in the 21st century and the Scottish Council on Archives offers its full support. We are committed to building on the principles and actions laid out in the document.
