Comma on Government Recordkeeping in Sub-Saharan Africa

The latest issue of Comma on Government Recordkeeping in Sub-Saharan Africa is now available on the ICA website in the member space only by following this link

Recordkeeping is a dynamic field in sub-Saharan Africa, where historical, cultural, political and economic factors work in combination to create environments that challenge established approaches to archival theory and practice. This is reflected in a growing wealth of writing by colleagues in and outside the region. This issue of Comma brings together new writing on government recordkeeping in sub-Saharan Africa, including colonial and post-colonial administrative histories, analyses of the capacity of national archives to deliver recordkeeping services, examinations of the introduction of digital systems to government work and of the  records-related implications, and, finally, reflections on broader issues of good governance, accountability, and archival solidarity.
