Archivoz’s newsroom closes for holidays until the 19th of August

During the last months, Archivoz has been settled down as a divulgation channel specialised in archives and records management. All of this has been possible, mostly due to the people following and reading us from all around the world.

During last year, we created and expanded our editorial team in different disciplines, giving a voice to different professions (archivists, librarians, documentarists, researchers and journalist) and different nationalities. Currently, we have editorial teams in Senegal, Argentina, Australia, United Kingdom, United States, Belgium, Brasil, Portugal, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Spain, Italy and the Middle East (Qatar), and we are working to bring new members to our team. It has been hard but rewarding work.

Being such a multidisciplinary and global team, and thanks to all the professionals that collaborate with us, we have been able to increase our impact to a level that we would have never imagined. To all of them, and of course, to all of our readers: thanks!.

Now, it is time for us to take a deserved holidays. It is going to be a two weeks break that will give us some rest and time to think about all the improvements that we can make.

We will be back on the 19th of August with new and exciting contents. Wait for it!.

Kind regards,

Archivoz
