ICA-SUV 2018 ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
XXIV JORNADAS DE LA CONFERENCIA DE ARCHIVEROS UNIVERSITARIOS ESPAÑOLES
“What Value do Historical Records in University Archives Add to Universities?”
Salamanca (Spain), 3rd to 5th October 2018
For its 2018 Conference the ICA-SUV joins with the Conferencia De Archiveros Universitarios Españoles (CAU) to reflect on the role of archives in the university world and particularly on the use of historical documentation that academic institutions retain as an important part of the heritage of the university itself. Unlike many other communities, universities are communities that can understand and value archives. Thus, the university context is well suited both to learn about and discuss the opportunities and challenges coming with current technologies for producing and making available records.
Meeting at the University of Salamanca at the time of its 800th anniversary, the 2018 ICA-SUV Conference-XXIV Jornadas CAU will reflect on the role of archives in the university world and particularly on the use of historical documentation that academic institutions retain as an important part of their heritage. The conference will bring together university archivists from very different countries and cultural traditions to reflect on their own work in relation to the historical documentation they manage. It will focus on the purely university records and their specific problems, but will also consider the many opportunities offered by incorporated holdings such as related special collections, external archives, and personal archives.
