The Direction des Archives de France is opening applications for the 2019 session of its international technical internship in archives. Since 1951, this internship allows archivists from all over the world to learn about modern tools for archival practice.

The one month program gives participants the opportunity to discover archival problematics around the globe and to share and debate about their experience. It is a unique time made of thinking on contemporary problems, of working on methods, of visiting archives centers, and of meeting professionals from all over the world.
