International Conference – “Archival Studies, Source Studies – Trends and Challenges”

The National Archives of Georgia serve the political, economic, scientific and cultural interests of the country.  The main objective of the archives, in addition to the preservation of the rich archival collection and ease of access to such documentation, is to study the collections and create a solid scientific base.

The National Archives actively responded to the challenges of the modern era as shown by the innovations implemented in this institution during the last years.  These innovations include the beginnings of a rather complicated process for moving the archives into a system, completing the data base by a new method, and also enable the increase of scientific potential.

On October 25-27, 2017, for the second time, the National Archives of Georgia is planning to host the International Conference on “Archival Studies, Source Studies – Trends and Challenges”. 

The goal of the conference is to bring together Georgian and foreign scientists to broaden communication, to discuss issues of source and antiquity studies in the Archives’ space, to share knowledge and experience by means of electronic databases and to carry out the scientific innovations.
