Archivists and related professionals have helped shape the historical record over centuries and millennia. And yet, we know very little about most of those individuals, their lives as well as the contexts in which they worked and how these have shaped their work. Who’s Who in Archives Globally, ICA-SUV’s online biography, attempts to fill this gap. It offers short biographies of individuals who have substantially advanced the archival field in theoretical and practical ways across the globe. These biographies also include a short list of primary and/or secondary literature for each living or deceased practitioner should you want to learn more about them. The site was launched in November 2013.We hope that reading up on the background and work of practitioners and scholars will help archivists to communicate, understand, and learn from each other across national boundaries. And we hope that a wider public will learn about these individuals and gain an understanding of how they have shaped what has come to be known as ‘the historical record’ in each country.
