Hong Kong Archives Society
Hong Kong Archives Society was established in 1999. It is a registered non-profit organization involved in raising public awareness of the importance of archival materials, and in promoting archival education. Archives contain information pertaining to the socioeconomic, political, and cultural past of a given place and time. They represent the legacy of a society, region, and country. The purpose of the Society is to help the public understand the value of archives, and at the same time provides a forum where archivists and those interested in archives can interact with each other.
