Association of the Archives of Hungarian Higher Education

Association of the Archives of Hungarian Higher Education

The archivists' community in Hungarian higher education institutions started to organise in 1992 and soon included most of the higher education institutions (21 out of 24), regardless of whether they already had their own archives. In 1993 the organisation was established as the Budapest-GödöllÅ‘ Association of University and College Archives, which in 1996 continued to operate under the name of the Hungarian Association of University and College Archives. Its general assembly in 2001 declared its transformation into an official association and established the officially registered Association of the Archives of Hungarian Higher Education as an independent professional archival organisation. Membership is open not only to individuals but also to institutions.

The Association is represented in joint professional bodies and committees, and contributes to the development of archival work through its own means. In addition to representing and developing the professional community, its main task is to assist its member institutions, and higher education institutions in general, in matters related to the operation of archives.
