National Archives of Australia unveils digitisation strategy

National Archives of Australia unveils digitisation strategy | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

By John Hilvert:

"The National Archives of Australia has outlined a plan to reduce the dependency of government agencies on paper records, saving up to $200 million a year in physical storage costs.

The Director General of the National Archives, David Fricker, said he hoped to drive a coordinated and strategic approach to digital information management across the Federal Government.

The Digital Continuity Plan has been developed by the Archives as a key element of a new whole-of-government policy that will see all Australian Government agencies change to a comprehensive digital information and records management regime.

Fricker said that in a digital world it was no longer feasible or practical for government agencies to continue to manage and store paper records."

Ford opens manufacturing archives in Australia - FEN

Ford opens manufacturing archives in Australia - FEN | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"Ford opens manufacturing archives in Australia By FEN on 28 November 2011

 

Ford Motor Company has opened Ford Australia Archives, one of only four historical archive centres in the company worldwide."

 

"The archives continues to acquire and preserve significant company materials, including paper, audio-visual and electronic records - that document the history of the company, its vehicles, subsidiaries, employees, plants and policies.

“The goal of the archives however is not just to collect material. It is to collect, catalogue, store and allow use of that material to help us tell our story,” Graziano said.

“With more than 86 years of history here in Australia, there is a lot to work with. We have materials here spanning as far back as our first days in Australia.”

Graziano said the collection had been made possible because of the dedication of a few employees who were passionate about retaining the history of Ford in Australia."
