P063 Visualising Information with RAM iSquares

Available in languages ENG

For a century "information" has been theorized and defined by information scientists and yet its nature remains obscure and highly contested. This alternative event will provide "new visions" -- actual images -- of information that have emerged from an empirical research project, more details at http://www.isquares.info/ram-study.html. Employing a visual data-gathering method known as the draw-and-write technique, approximately 450 research participants both students and records and archives professionals were asked “What is information?” between April and September 2015 by drawing upon a 4" by 4" piece of paper, coined an information square or iSquare, for short. The drawings of information were analysed using compositional interpretation and a framework of graphic representations by Engelhardt to determine how participants envision information and the implications of the renderings for RAM. The results of the research will be reported in the presentation. Three separate elements are included: 

  • Presentation - Includes an overview of the project; presentation of the findings and implications for the RIM disciplines. It will include hands-on participation by attendees working on the iSquares under the supervision of the Presenter  (90 minutes)
  • iSquare Exhibit - Available throughout ICA . An artful display of approximately 400 iSquares
  • Hands-on Activity - Available throughout ICA. An opportunity for all records and archives professionals to draw an iSquare and contribute to the iSquare Exhibit and research. And, over the duration of the conference the drawings will be rearranged to highlight different themes from the findings, showing that there are many answers to the question “What is information?” Please view the exhibition posted on the Hands-on Activity

P098 Sharing the ICA Advocacy Expert Group achievements

Available in languages ENG

The ICA established the Advocacy Expert Group in April 2014 to develop and implement archival and records management advocacy. Under the auspices of the ICA Program Commission, the Advocacy Expert Group develops programs and strategies for promoting awareness and empowerment of archives and records management within society, having an active presence in communities, on internet and social media, as well as surveying, developing and managing resources on advocacy. The ICA Advocacy Experts act as advocacy advisers when the ICA needs expert opinion as well as sponsors or liaison for advocacy projects initiated by other parts of the ICA network. Our presentation will give an overview of two successful projects achieved by the Advocacy Expert Group during its first two years: the promotion of the Universal Declaration on Archives (UDA), and the development of an advocacy database of events and resources. The Universal Declaration on Archives developed by the ICA, was unanimously adopted by the membership in 2010 in Oslo and officially adopted by the UNESCO on November 10, 2011. It is a multilingual and multicultural document holding principles. It is a powerful and succinct statement, about the relevance and importance of records, addressed to the general public. It outlines the connections between records and good governance, basic human rights, cultural and community identity, history and heritage. It details the unique characteristics of archives and their management requirements to ensure ongoing access. The UDA recognizes the collective responsibility of all in the management of archives and is a call to action in order to seek engagement by governments, decision makers and the general public. This aspirational document became a key pillar of the ICA outreach and advocacy activities. The Advocacy Expert Group maximized the potential of the UDA online register made available to individuals and professionals signing to show their support for the Declaration.

P099 Developing a Toolkit for the Analysis of Information Culture

Available in languages ENG

This paper reports on progress towards developing an information culture toolkit, a deliverable from the PCOM funded project, Learning to Walk the Talk. The paper will provide an introduction to the prototype toolkit and describe its individual components. The aim of the Learning to Walk the Talk project is to help archivists and records/information managers understand and apply the key concept of information culture as part of next generation recordkeeping practice. The concept of information culture relates to values, attitudes and behaviours that influence the ways in which information is managed. Every organisation has an information culture, no matter where in the world it is located, what capability and capacity it has, and what its mission and functions are. How individuals understand their recordkeeping duties, what kind of information they prefer (e.g., formal vs. informal, textual vs. pictorial), with whom they share information, how much trust they place on existing recordkeeping systems: these are some of the questions that may reveal the cultural dimensions of managing information. Dimensions will vary enormously, and it is essential to be able to analyse and understand those dimensions in order to develop context appropriate recordkeeping systems and strategies. In 2015, project team members visited the national archival authorities in Fiji, Australia, Brazil and the Netherlands, interviewing staff members in each institution. The main purpose of these interviews was two-fold. Firstly, to analyse the information culture of those institutions, and secondly, to develop a methodology that could be replicated by archivists in order to analyse the information cultures of organisations in their jurisdictions. The four archival authorities were all concerned with transitioning from a paper to a digital environment, but were at very different stages in the transition process. Their locations in such diverse regions meant that there were considerable disparities in terms of resourcing, capability and capacity, not to mention significant cultural variation.

P112 Collaboration and Support: Highlighting the work of the Section on University and Research Institution Archives (SUV)

Available in languages ENG

Open discussion, willingness to share best practices (and problems), and a genuine interest in cooperation are the hallmarks of the annual conferences of the SUV. Although not the only initiative of the Section, they have been a primary means by which the Section has advanced the understanding of complex problems facing academic and research archivists and by which archivists have built bridges with other professionals. Most importantly, they have reignited archivists' passion for the archival enterprise while demonstrating the value of archival theory and practice to broader communities. Given the breadth and scope of the mandate for university archives, the themes of the conferences have been varied to respond to emerging issues and take advantage of collaborations possible at geographically disparate sites. Three panelists will provide insights into the debates and ideas generated over the last three SUV conferences."The New Age Archivist: Managing Records and Archives in a Digital World." This 2013 conference explored the range of early attempts at electronic records management in the 1980s to current research on preservation and ensuring authenticity, and it reassessed expectations for appraisal and description.  Additionally, presentations considered how new technologies can assist with archival outreach while becoming a means of reconciliation and connecting people to their history. "Research and Scientific Archives." With a focus on research and scientific archives, this 2014 conference explored the issue of large datasets of (often international and multi-disciplinary) research, and how to collect, file, appraise and value both research papers and raw scientific data. One compelling theme was that of partnerships between archives and research laboratories, and the issues surrounding the sometimes uncertain relationship between the archivist/historian and the scientist; as well as the preservation of data from the hard sciences and medicine, and managing data involving human subjects.

P127 My brothers' keeper: a case study of the incontrovertible value of professional associations and long term relationships

Available in languages ENG

The environment for recordkeeping in the Pacific is extremely harsh. Unforgiving tropical conditions, frequent natural disasters, meager resources, dilapidated buildings, and a very low understanding of the role/value of records can combine to stifle/suffocate Pacific archivists and information managers. In such a climate, collaboration and co-operation are key to breaking the bonds of such impediments. This case study will examine how professional associations, co-operation, collaboration, and consensus building have enabled the National Archives of Fiji (NAF) to boost its public engagement by five hundred (500) per cent, its staffing by fifty two (52) per cent, and its budget by one hundred and forty five (145) per cent. These numbers may seem far-fetched or even comical; but we feel they are just the beginning of our efforts to: 1)    connect our people with their heritage; 2)    unlock the potential of Fiji’s history; 3)    improve the level of recordkeeping/information management throughout the public sector; 4)    and increase access to information.

P128 Archival cooperation in Iberoamerica: experience and networks

Available in languages SPA

No puede decirse que el tema de la cooperación internacional para el desarrollo de la archivística en Iberoamérica sea una novedad. No obstante, al día de hoy no sabemos a ciencia cierta qué se ha hecho, qué iniciativas han existido o cuáles siguen vigentes. De acuerdo con estas experiencias, sería interesante resaltar cuáles han sido las fortalezas e identificar las dificultades. En esta presentación propongo un breve recorrido por las principales estrategias cooperativas en materia archivística a nivel iberoamericano, como, por ejemplo, la Red de Archivos Diplomáticos Iberoamericanos (RADI), el programa Iberarchivos-ADAI o los proyectos de la misma Asociación Latinoamericana de Archivos (ALA), por mencionar unas cuantas iniciativas. Lejos de establecer un ajuste de cuentas, el objetivo de la ponencia es dar a conocer los proyectos realizados y resaltar sus alcances, identificar los retos y las tareas heredadas y, por último, lanzar algunas propuestas a desarrollar en un futuro próximo.

P129 Access to archives of organizations of faith traditions

Available in languages ENG

Since ICA has published its Principles of Access to Archives (2012) the worldwide community of archivists have a general standard giving guidelines to fulfill the major tasks: to enable people in need for information from the archives to access the relevant archival documents. Moreover, the Principles not only address the archivists, but all actors dealing with archives as producers, legislators, owners of archives of both public and private entities. Without stating explicit regulations the Principles address the essential issues to be taken into consideration by all actors creating, proceeding or using information kept in archives. Particular attention is given to archives documenting human rights violations.As the Principles do not only address to archives of governments and public administrations, archivists of private entities are called to review the Principles as well, among them, many archivists of archives of religious or faith organizations and institutions. The variety of this group is large. Mainly in the European tradition churches are often closely linked to the State. Hence their archives access rules often follow those in force for public administration archives. Many other religious traditions, Christian or non-Christian, are not linked with the State; they consider their institution being a private organization. Therefore, its archives are seen as private archives. However, religious organizations endeavour to have an impact on society, on politics and legislation, on moral and education, on reconciliation of people and on peace between nations, on social development and on overcoming violence and poverty. The documentary evidence of all these activities is kept in their archives. To the extent churches and religious organizations are seeking public impact, they are called to rethink their access policies.

More than only this: organizations of faith traditions acting in open and democratic societies should learn that the opening of their archives has an immediate impact on the credibility and trustworthiness of the organization itself.

P151 The SBA and Sustainability of Business Archives in Digital and Global Environments: Encouraging "Glocal" Engagement in Archives Services

Available in languages ENG

The Section on Business Archives (SBA) is a professional section within the ICA that supports “the preservation and use of business archives worldwide.” Originating as a committee on business records, the section was formed in 1990 as the Section on Business and Labour Archives (SBL), but was renamed in October 2014 to underline its focus on business archives. The new SBA has a five-part mission to: “promote collaboration and communication between business archives, communicate the value of business archives, develop guidelines on the care of business archives, encourage access to and use of business archives, and co-operate with public archives which keep business records.” In order to achieve this mission, the SBA holds annual symposiums on various themes. The theme of the annual symposium for 2016, was “sustainability.” This theme has been continued in this panel with the hope of celebrating the SBA’s name change and furthering discussion on and interest in business archives on a wider scale.

The panel includes presentations from three notable corporate archives: HSBC Asia Pacific Archives in Hong Kong, Intesa Saopaolo Group Archives in Italy, and the Archives Group of Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan. Each of the three presentations will showcase cutting-edge initiatives in global business archives management and the ways in which the archives keep up with ongoing societal change in today’s increasingly digital and globalized world. In doing so, the panel will thus explore the vital role of sustainability in contemporary business archives management.

P166 ICA FIDA - Helping archivists to help themselves in low resourced environments 2010-2016

Available in languages ARA CHI ENG FRA KOR RUS SPA

The Fund for the Development for the International Development of Archives (FIDA) - established at  the request of the ICA Executive Board  first met  in Washington in 2010.  The objective was to assist colleagues in those countries who, for whatever reason, could not support the development of their archives and who needed assistance. FIDA is complimentary to PCOM, which addresses issues of more general application.

FIDA has shown in its first six years of operation that it has made a difference to the development of particularly low-resourced groups of archivists, records managers and archives across the world. It is about real life projects that have an immediately positive impact on the ground. It Is intensely practical.

The FIDA programme enables archivists of whatever sort, as long as they are members of ICA,to propose developments which they themselves require and to apply for a small grant from the FIDA Trustees. This is often  done in collaboration  with the ICA branches but also addresses  the needs of particular archives. It has helped colleagues in Africa, the Caribbean, the Middle East, South East Asia, south eastern Europe and the small islands of the Pacific. It has helped with  training in preservation, including the preservation of  audio-visual and digital materials and in national and local record keeping and supported advocacy initiatives for new archival legislation. With a little money archivists can do a lot.

This presentation will be a panel with some of the successful candidates. It will show ICA's continuing commitment to improve the situation for archivists in low-resourced environments.

Hermelinde LANZA, Institut National des Archives du Congo, Republique Democratique Du Congo

Née à BUTA, dans l’actuelle province du Bas-Uele en République Démocratique du Congo, Hermelinde LANZA Doodoo, Directrice Générale de l’Institut National des Archives du Congo (INACO), mère de quatre  enfants, est détentrice d’un diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies en Histoire de l’Université Paris I (Panthéon Sorbonne).
Avant d’occuper ses actuelles fonctions à l’INACO, Hermelinde LANZA Doodoo était Directrice Générale Adjointe, puis Directrice Générale par intérim des Archives  Nationales du Congo (ARNACO), avec le grade de Conservateure en Chef Adjointe, de 2002 jusqu’à la mise en œuvre de la réforme qui a conduit à la transformation des ARNACO, ancien service spécialisé du Ministère de la Culture et des Arts, en un établissement public doté de la personnalité juridique dénommé INACO.
Le projet INACO est, en effet, un ambitieux chantier d’un Etat qui a pris conscience aussi bien des travers de la crise archivistique qu’il a connue et continue à connaitre, que de l’intérêt culturel, voire économique, politique et stratégique d’une administration rigoureuse des archives dans le processus qui mène vers son émergence.
Depuis sa nomination en décembre 2015, Hermelinde LANZA fait de la matérialisation de la réforme en court un challenge qu’elle est déterminée à relever.


P168 Progressing your PCOM Project

Available in languages ARA CHI ENG FRA KOR RUS SPA

ICA's Programme Commission (PCOM) has a sum of money in its annual budget to award to members (and their partners) to fund projects which meet PCOM's goals and criteria. We want to attract more and better applications for this funding in the up-coming PCOM cycle. This presentation will outline PCOM's goals, particularly with reference to project funding, and introduce the criteria which applications need to meet in order to receive funding. The presentation will also explain how PCOM members and Secretariat staff support and monitor project progress from initial project ideas to successful launch of a new PCOM-funded or endorsed product to the international archival and recordkeeping field.
