In 1983, democratic elections ended a seven‐year military dictatorship in Argentina, bringing the end of a violent military dictatorship and its campaign to eliminate what it labelled ‘subversive elements’ within Argentine society. Alongside the regime’s human victims, information and archives also suffered severely.

When civilians returned to power, they moved to initiate wide‐spread educational reforms, many of which focused on the development of libraries and archives.
