UK Memory of the World Register

The UK Memory of the World Register was established to highlight documentary heritage which holds cultural significance specific to the UK. The UK Register helps raise awarness of some of the UK's exceptional, but lesser-known documentary riches by awarding them with the globally-recognised Memory of the World status. The UK Register complements the UNESCO Memory of the World International Register, which is a catalogue of documentary heritage of global significance and outstanding universal value. Country-level Memory of the World Registers exist around the globe, helping to promote documentary heritage of local significance. Together, these registers are the public face of UNESCO's Memory of the World programme. The deadline for the first round of nominations is 17:00 on 8 January 2010
