Memory of the World appeared in the international context that documentary heritage of high value was on the edge of disappearance or destruction. In the past 20 years, Memory of the World has won itself a golden reputation with tremendous contribution in the field of heritage protection as follows:putting forward and promoting the consciousness of documentary heritage protection, building a unique archives safeguard system, and setting up special fund and database for the project. Nevertheless, defects still exist. For instance, the uneven involvement among regions and countries, insufficient propaganda work, the lack of cooperation between countries and the weakness in information construction can be found in the duration. Given all of the above, the authors explore to develop it further from the perspectives of coordinating regional development, strengthening the propaganda work and cooperation between countries, improving the level of information construction.

Key words: Memory of the World, Protect of documentary heritage, Progress strategy, Memory of the World Register
