The ICA Human Rights Working Group released its monthly newsletter today and exciting news of a new directory of human rights archives is underway. Here’s more from the newsletter:
The ICA Human Rights Working Group, with the cooperation of Archivists without Borders (AsF), is beginning a project to build an on-line directory of (1) archives that identify themselves as human rights archives and (2) archives that are part of a human rights organization and are open to the public. The directory will be available through the International Council on Archives’ website; the ICA’s International Standard for Describing Institutions with Archival Holdings will be used for gathering directory information. Roser Rodriguez of Spain is leading the project. She will be asking archives to provide directory information; any institution that wishes to be part of the directory should contact her at email@example.com.
