Director General Message

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. Peace and blessings be upon Prophet Mohammed bin Abdullah and his friends.

What have been achieved through the years and today, instill the slogan of the Sharjah Documentation and Archives Authority «For a memory that reserves tomorrow». This slogan embodies the methodology of work and the achievements of the activities and programs, where great accomplishments were realized within the departments and entities of the Government of Sharjah, for the purpose of improving their archives, and apply advanced systems to proceed in documenting and maintaining their work, according to the professional standards.

The interest in documentation and archiving has become a national and humane goal, and a highly desirable purpose in the UAE in general, and Sharjah in particular. This made us move successfully over the years, to achieve many of the indicators that allow us to pursue our work. We are more determined and giving, to increase our efforts for achieving excellence in our actions, and thus pursue our journey with pride, determination, and confidence until we achieve our ambition and the aspiration of our leadership in mainstreaming the archiving umbrella, and creating awareness of documentation. We believe that our dedication and devotion are the focus of success and prosperity.

The cooperation among the various government departments and entities, operating in the Emirate of Sharjah, along with the joint efforts binding the National Archives, and the various international and regional institutions, call us to achieve more accomplishments, to remain at the forefront. It also pushes us to realize what has been accomplished, and improve our work constantly, in order to realize the goals of the Authority.

We, at the Sharjah Documentation and Archives Authority, are always striving to provide channels for effective communication with governmental bodies, to improve the quality of our services, and spread public awareness of our projects and initiatives, which we adopt to support the development plan, which we aspire.

We pray to God Almighty to assist us and guide our steps towards success and to make the Emirate of Sharjah an inspiring model, in the fields of documentation and archiving.
