Welcome, this is where you can find information related to archives in Hong Kong. Our mission is to raise public awareness of the importance and value of archives in Hong Kong and promote professional development. The Society aims to provide a community and forum for archivists and those interested in the archive profession to meet, share ideas and contribute to the debate.
What is digital archiving? What is digital archiving involved? The rapid growth in the creation of digital materials has emphasized the speed and ease and which is very different from traditional technologies. More and more of what archivists collect is born digitally, shall these digital materials be preserved digitally too ? The Digital Archiving sub-group is established as a place for discussion and sharing of all these.
Oral history has a vital role to play in documenting history. To encourage more organisations and individuals to use this approach in recording their unique contributions to, and memories of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Archives Society (HKAS) is proud to have established the Hong Kong Oral History Group in October 2012 as a forum for debate and discussion.
