IRMS Scotland, in partnership with the Digital Preservation Coalition, National Records of Scotland and Scottish Council on Archives, invites you to a free 1-day seminar on Recordkeeping Informatics, led by a renowned team of leading academics from Monash University in Australia.
This is a rare opportunity for the records management community in the UK to hear directly from Barbara Reed, Frank Upward and Gillian Oliver, who are currently in the final stages of developing a new informatics model which promises to bring significant positive changes in the evolution of records management theory and practice.
Recordkeeping Informatics is a rethink of practical recordkeeping approaches for the digital era, based on two building blocks - continuum thinking and recordkeeping metadata - explored through three facets: information culture, access and business processes.
The workshop will explore the importance of continuum thinking, interdisciplinarity and new ways of presenting recordkeeping metadata. It will feature an introduction / refresher on the continuum theory that is based on the movie Spotlight - delegates are advised to watch the movie in advance to get the most out of this session.
The workshop will be held in the stunning surroundings of Glasgow City Chambers in George Square, and is taking place the day after the end of this year's IRMS Conference, also in Glasgow. The workshop is free to attend, but places are limited, so register now to secure your seat at this fascinating event.
Registration on the day will open at 9:30am for a 10:00am start, and we'll finish at around 4:30pm. The full programme is below. Please note the event will be recorded.
This is the only seminar involving the team from Monash currently planned in the UK, so we're expecting high demand from practitioners, trainers and academics from across the country. If the event is oversubscribed, priority will be given to those who are members of (or who have requested a place via) any of the event partners.
We look forward to seeing you there!
