Name of creator
The Archives Association of British Columbia (AABC) was formed in October 1990 when members of the Association of British Columbia Archivists and the British Columbia Archives Council voted to amalgamate the two organizations. The association was incorporated on January 21, 1991. The AABC speaks on behalf of both archivists and archival institutions across the province. As a member of the Canadian Council of Archives, the Association represents archival institutions in British Columbia at the national level. The mission of the AABC is to foster the development of the provincial archival community in order to better preserve and promote access to British Columbia's documentary heritage.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of the operational records of the Archives Association of British Columbia (AABC) and its predecessor bodies the Association of British Columbia Archivists (ABCA) and the British Columbia Archives Council (BCAC). The records date from 1973 to 2000 and cover all aspects of AABC business including executive minutes and correspondence, financial records, grant applications, committee files, publications, copies of the newsletter and other material. Included in the fonds are 49 3.5 inch floppy disks that date from 1990 to 1999. Some material from these disks was printed out in 2012.
