SUV Reading Group

The ICA-SUV Reading Group, which launched in June 2020, seeks to virtually bring together archivists and record managers from all over the world to discuss once a month a journal article or a news item about recordkeeping. It is intended to be an exchange of ideas, perspectives and opinions in a convivial setting.

Sessions are announced on the ICA-SUV listserv. Please get in touch with Venkat Srinivasan (, Ellen Engseth ( or Anne-Flore Laloë ( if you have suggestions or would like to help by proposing articles or running a session. We are always looking for ways to strengthen or improve the reading group. So, if you have ideas or comments, feel free to reach out to any of us!

Next meeting

We'll discuss a couple of pieces on the Stasi Archives. One, a short article from the New York Times about volunteer efforts. And the second, a 12-page article titled "A legacy of the DDR: The Stasi Records Archive" by Dagmar Hovestädt.
