Solidarity with our colleagues in Venice

Archives Portal Europe is happy to adhere to the appeal launched by the International Council on Archives, through its European Branch Eurbica, to help the archives of Venice, Italy, that have suffered terrible damages because of the recent floods:

The International Council on Archives, through its European Branch, wishes to express its deepest sympathy and solidarity with our archival friends and colleagues who have suffered from the floods in Venice in recent days. The full extent of the damage will only be fully understood once the flood water recedes, but colleagues throughout Europe will wish to help in whichever practical ways they can. For the present, we wanted to send this message of support to let our colleagues in Venice know that they are not forgotten and that archivists throughout Europe are thinking about them at this difficult time.

A collection account has been set up for contributions. Those who wish to help can send donations made out to “SIAE per la raccolta fondi a favore dei titolari delle librerie e delle biblioteche di Venezia”, using the
IBAN: IT 36 V 02008 05085 000105794751.
For bank transfers from abroad this is the bic swift code required: UNCRITM1B33.
