Wëllkomm op der Säit vum Veräin vun de Lëtzebuerger Archivisten a.s.b.l. (VLA)
Willkommen auf der Seite des Vereins Luxemburger Archivare
Bienvenue sur la page de l'Association des archivistes luxembourgeois
The VLA is promoting the concerns of archives and archivists in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Our mission, explained in more detail in our statutes (in german), can be summarized as follows:
The association is committed to respect the Universal Declaration on Archives and the Code of Ethics adopted by the ICA, the International Council on Archives.
The VLA supports its members in the exercise of their profession and promotes contacts and collaboration. In addition to that the VLA:
Promotes the professional and continuous training of its members;
Organizes specialized events and meetings, such as the Annual Archivists Day;
Established and maintains relations with similar associations in Luxembourg and abroad and advises its members in archival matters.
The VLA would like to raise public awareness to the importance of archives and the missions of archivists. Without archives, our society would be deprived of:
The legal and administrative basis for the proper functioning of a country
Important parts of its written cultural heritage
Essential sources for historical research
