What are archives and fonds?

“ Archives are those records, created or received by a person, a family, an organization, a business or a government in the course of their life and work, which merit preservation because they provide enduring value:  because they provide evidence of or information about either the functions, responsibilities, actions or transactions of the creator or about the life and times in which the creator conducted his or her affairs and the society in which he or she lived and worked. “       ARCHIVES   Principles and practices  “      Laura Millar.
