An analysis of the public archives infrastructure in Uganda

Comma (2012), 2012, (1), 67–78.

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to report the results of research into the existing infrastructure for managing public archives in Uganda. This study has revealed the lack of national policy for archives management and an absence of assigned responsibilities for archives management within the Government of Uganda. Limited resources and facilities - low staffing levels and inadequate buildings and equipment - have had a serious impact on the availability of adequate infrastructure. The Uganda National Archives has neither ICT infrastructure of its own nor has it set standards to be followed by ministries, departments and agencies. Recommendations are proposed to improve the public archives infrastructure in order to ensure the effective management of public archives.
