Norway's documentary heritage
On behalf of UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register, the Norwegian Council for Cultural Affairs has compiled a register of Norway’s documentary heritage.
Norway’s documentary heritage is a list of the documents that are especially important for our society to protect, because of the visibility provided for unique and irreplaceable documents that represent our common memory.
Our six documents, stored at the Gunnerus Library and the Dora Library, represent important events in Norwegian history. We are proud that these six are inscribed in the national list. The Memory of the World programme aims to help protect important Norwegian documentary heritage and make it available.
