Organised by National Archives
Building on the general theme, Empowering Knowledge Societies, the ICA Congress 2020 will explore the critical role that archive services play in 21st century society. Three broad sub-themes will be discussed.
Artificial intelligence is quickly showing its potential to assist the archival endeavour, making manuscript documents searchable and helping manage massive volumes of images and born digital records. New ways of linking documentary heritage in all formats and media are quickly emerging.
Sustainable knowledge is fundamental to sustainable development. Archives and libraries must be at the very forefront of emerging trends in public expectations, the technology and the politics that are shaping the way our societies are creating, preserving, making available and using our documentary heritage.
Evidence and trust in archives and record keeping are challenged by social media, hacking and official use of private electronic systems. The United Nations' ambitious Sustainable Development Goals require accurate and authentic records as a base for planning, for implementation and then evaluation.
