Recordkeeping Toolkit Gets Award

More good news coming from the Pacific-

The Recordkeeping for Good Governance Toolkit that was produced by the Pacific Regional Branch International Council on Archives (PARBICA) was recently honored by the National Archives of Australia.

“It gives me great pleasure to inform you that the Pacific Regional
Branch of the International Council on Archives has won an Australian
Society of Archivists Mander Jones Award for the Recordkeeping for Good Governance Toolkit, in category 1A: ‘Publication making the greatest contribution to the archives profession in Australia written by or on behalf of a corporate body’.” –Cassie Findlay, Secretary, Mander Jones Awards Committee

This toolkit was created for Pacific Archivists to better equip government agencies across the Pacific to improve the state of recordkeeping within their administrations. Although the toolkit is designed for Pacific organizations, it can easily set an example and inspire those nations worldwide who need to create, or revise, one of their own.

Check out the toolkit.
