As part of our commitment to improve understanding of current records, archives and information management issues within government, Archives New Zealand supports recordkeepers, and staff responsible for recordkeeping and information management, to develop their skills and knowledge through:
Records and Archives Management Events and Forums: Archives New Zealand runs regular government records and archives management forums and other events in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin. The events allow people working in government agencies to discuss current recordkeeping issues, hear current updates from Archives New Zealand, network with others in the same field, and share ideas and concerns with Archives New Zealand.
Government Archives and Records Management Training: Archives New Zealand offers courses to support records and archives management across the state sector and local government as well as community. The courses aim to develop knowledge and skills in individual recordkeeping staff, and raise awareness of The Public Records Act (PRA).
Future Perfect 2012: Digital Preservation by Design: Archives New Zealand is organinsing a conference focused on Digitial Preservation. The Digital Preservation by Design theme of the Future Perfect 2012 conference seeks to stimulate discussion about how, when and why influencing the design of systems can support digital preservation and ultimately ensure that today’s information is available tomorrow.
