Summary/Abstract: Archives constitute the memory of nations and societies; they form the basis of their identity and are an essential element of informing society. By testifying to the activities carried out and the decisions taken, they at the same time ensure the continuity of the bodies as well as the justification of their rights, whether individual or state. Since archives guarantee citizens' access to administrative information and to the right of peoples to know their history, they are essential to the exercise of democracy, the taking of responsibilities from public power and better governance. Archiving represents a field of social activity and includes theoretical and practical problems related to the administration of documents of various types. The activity of the archive is the receipt, preservation, regulation and processing, microfilming, digitization and publication of the records that are part of the archival collections.
