UNESCO/Jikji Memory of the World Prize

UNESCO is inviting nominations for the 7th edition of the UNESCO/Jikji Memory of the World Prize.

The Prize was created to commemorate the inscription of the Buljo jikji simche yojeol – the oldest known book of moveable metal print in the world – on the Memory of the World International Register. As such, it has become an important symbol of the Memory of the World Programme’s efforts to support the preservation and accessibility of documentary heritage as a common heritage of humanity.


Humanitarian Aid Statement

Dear IASA Membership,

As some of you may know, one of our loyal members was deeply affected by the earthquake in Mexico. During our 2017 Conference Banquet in Berlin last week, Filip Šír initiated a fundraiser that resulted in €550, which has been sent to aid the relief effort in Mexico.
