•To establish initial conservation priorities and plan for on-going preservation programme.
•To carry out listing/cataloguing of archival holdings.
•To exploit archival material through publication or exhibition.

WHAT ARE ARCHIVES?

Archives are the records maintained permanently by a given institution in any medium because of their legal, fiscal, informational, evidential, and historical value. 'Archives' is also a term used to describe the physical site where records of permanent value are arranged, described, preserved, and made available, or the department within an organisation responsible for administering the Archives.
