2016 Conference Papers
SOUTH AFRICAN SOCIETY OF ARCHIVISTS 2017 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
The South African Society of Archivist (SASA), held the Annual Conference on 4-6 July 2017, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.
The conference theme for 2017 was: “Archives, records and innovation in the digital era”
The rapid pace of technological innovation in information handling, such as digital technology, has created new opportunities and challenges for Archivists and Records Managers. Long-term preservation and management of digital records is a major concern facing the profession. Creating, managing and preserving digital records involves various challenges, such as policies, standards, new roles and relationships, copyright, meta-data and other technical issues. Lack of skills in this area is also one of the major challenges. The impact of technology is transforming not only the nature of the record but also the way in which people and organizations behave, communicate, and carry out their business. The very nature and role of the record and the archival institution is coming into question. What are the implications for the profession? Are we ready for this rapidly evolving digital world?
The conference provided an opportunity to learn and share innovative ideas, experiences, and latest research on this thought provoking theme.
- Policies, Standards, Legislation
- Hybrid archives and records management
- Project management
- Education and training
- Born digital records
- Collaboration and cooperation
- Social media
- Open data, Big data, Data governance
The 2017 conference theme and sub-themes proved to be interesting. with much food for thought.
