The link from our blog to Heritage Archives Bangladesh,has been updated,you can find this link on the sidebar of this blog. Heritage Archives Bangladesh was established on 23 March 2002 in Rajshahi (300 KM west of Dhaka) and is an independent professional depository of important documents, photographs, leaflets, posters, private correspondences, journals and periodicals, magazines, local history books, and audiovisual and digital items with focus on:

1. Social movements (pro-democracy, labour, students, peasant, women, environmental, Islamic, nationalist, human right(s), and
2. Social transformation (emergence of NGO’s urban growth, new entrepreneurial groups, labour migration, popular culture).

“The collective memory of Bangladesh and its 160 million inhabitants is severely threatened because there are no places where we can deposit our historical material. There are only a few archives in Bangladesh and they collect state records. So, for collecting and preserving such materials which neither the state archives, nor the existing libraries of Bangladesh collect and preserve, ‘Heritage: Archives of Bangladesh History’ has been established.” So you can read on its homepage. Heritage Archives aims at creating a new type of open, service-oriented and user-friendly archives in Bangladesh.

Many volunteers are connected with Heritage Archives and work daily to catalogue and preserve this important collection and to receive guests who are doing research.
