Call To Improve The Presence Of Archives

From 6 to 10 June 2022, the International Council on Archives (ICA), has celebrated the fourth International Archives Week IAW2022 focusing on the theme #ArchivesAreYou. ICA invites archival and records management professionals and organizations to join for virtual conversations on this topic.


With a joint campaign, Wikimedia CH and the Association of Swiss Archivists VSA-AAS wanted to give an impulse to support this initiative. In consulting the Wikimedia CH Map Service, contributors can immediately see, that there is a lot to catch up regarding Wikimedia content on archives in the respective countries.


Wikimedia CH provided a project page on Meta which was seen 4’413 times between the 6 and the 10 June (2’549 times in german, 1’439 times in french, 294 times in italian and 131 times in english). To ensure that our campaign was seen, we displayed a banner on Wikipedia from the 6 to 10 June and got 2’07 mio clicks on it.
