The role of a 21st Century Archive (Powerpoint)

Comma (2007), 2007, (3-4), 101

Abstract

Natalie Ceeney shows why a move from being ‘Keepers’ of records to a more proactive role of managing government information is not only important, but essential. She gives her perspective on why the current record keeping paradigm is breaking down in a changing world of new technology, different government decision-making processes, and an environment where the distinction between a record and a key piece of information is increasingly blurred. She argues that failure to address this issue means that a National Archive may simply stop getting any records which matter, a completely untenable position for any archive. Instead, she gives a view on the sort of leadership role that a National Archive should play, which she illustrates through examples of what the United Kingdom National Archives is currently doing in this field.
