Welcome to the website of Hong Kong Archives Society, a place where you can find information related to archives in Hong Kong. The 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. In this website, you will find information sources related to archives materials of Hong Kong, updates on events organized by the Society, and information that may expand your understanding of archives. You are also welcome to join us and become a member of the Society.
