"Digital dark ages" haunt archivists

"Archives, the sum of the documents created in the routine course of activities, are sources of memory, information and action. They play an essential role in the development of society. Archives are a unique, precious and irreplaceable heritage transmitted from generation to generation. That's the opening of a declaration made by the roughly 600 archivists of Quebec. They want you to sign it to acknowledge that what they do, and what we help them do, is important"
