Professional Archive Management Course

Professional Archive Management Course An archivist is a person responsible for managing archives. Archives are documents created or received and accumulated by a person or organisation in the course of the conduct of affairs and preserved because of their continuing value. Archival documents do not come only as text on paper, but include every known form and format in which information can be fixed in the form of records. Avalanches of information are increasingly produced which makes proper archiving a priority in many organizations. Historically, the term has often referred more narrowly to non-current records deposited or selected for deposit in an archival institution.

The word 'archives' is also commonly used to refer to:

  • The organization, agency or program responsible for the selection, care and use of records of
  • continuing value.
  • The building or place dedicated to their storage, preservation and use.
