Conclusions of the National Archivists Session

Comma (2007), 2007, (3-4), 127–130.

Abstract

It was the first time that a session specifically for national archivists had been held at CITRA; the innovation was well received and the discussion lively. Two plenary sessions tackled The Paradigm Shift for Archives in the Information Society: From Keeper to Information Manager and Return on Investment versus Global Solidarity: Contradictory or Complementary? The first session addressed the issue of changing roles and responsibilities of archives services (as applicable to nations in a state of transition to democracy as those with long-standing democratic governments), the importance of exchanging ideas, and of constantly benchmarking best practice. The second session outlined the need for global professional solidarity and emphasised the benefits of, and need for, investment in international co-operative ventures.
