Connecting the Disconnected: Designing Socially Inclusive, Integrated, Archival and Recordkeeping systems and Services

Learning to Walk the Talk: Analysing Information Culture Phase 2
2017 - 2018
 
The objective of this project is to help archivists understand and apply the key concept of information culture as part of next generation recordkeeping practice. Information culture refers to the information management-specific settings of organizational cultures, namely the values and attitudes accorded to information within specific organizational contexts. A central theme of recordkeeping informatics is the development of a recordkeeping culture within an organization. The first step on that path is diagnosis of the organisation’s existing information culture. Once that diagnosis is established, contextually appropriate strategies can be developed to promote recordkeeping.
Rights in Record by Design
2017 - 2019

Children who experience out-of-home care need quality recordkeeping systems to develop and nurture their sense of identity and connectedness; to account for their care experiences throughout their lives; and to detect, report, investigate, and take action against child neglect and abuse. Those involved in supporting children experiencing family dislocation need access to efficient, effective, and responsive recordkeeping systems to ensure the highest standards and continuity of care. This interdisciplinary research project aims to design and develop a Lifelong Living Archive for children who experience out-of-home car, in order to transform archival and recordkeeping frameworks in this sector towards a child-centred model.
