UNESCO launches Memory of the World online survey

16-02-2009 (Paris)
A general survey on the state of awareness of the Memory of the World Programme has been launched in cooperation with InterPARES in Vancouver, Canada. This survey is intended for library, archives and museum specialists as well as anyone with an interest in preserving documentary heritage. The purpose of this survey is to increase and assess awareness of the Programme and to encourage nominations to the Memory of the World Registers. UNESCO will use the results to further develop the Memory of the World Programme. 

The Memory of the World Programme was created by UNESCO to promote preservation of, and disseminate information regarding, documentary heritage found in archival holdings and library and museum collections worldwide. The Programme includes national/regional committees, which help to initiate and support nominations within their respective regions.

Its Registers list documentary heritage of recognized world significance assessed on the basis of specific criteria outlined in the UNESCO Memory of the World General Guidelines to Safeguard Documentary Heritage.

The form, which takes just a few minutes to complete, can be filled in online, in English or French: please click here.

It can also be downloaded as a word document from this page to be filled in and returned to: j.springer@unesco.org

The deadline for the survey is 30 April 2009.
