Key members of the records management and archival community gathered at the University of Victoria on April 28 to share ideas about record storage and management in the digital age. The day-long conference featured a wide range of speakers, including experts from provincial and federal government, Simon Fraser University and museums.

It’s for everyone in the record storage and management community to keep pace with the changes of the digital age and how it impacts our industry,” said Gordon. “Events like these where we share expertise and ideas will benefit not only those offering record storage, but our clients as well.”

The key note presentation was “Defending Traditional Rights in the Digital Age: A Case Study” by speakers Michelle Barroca & Margaret Teneese of the Ktunaxa Nation. Other topics included “Legal Issues in Record Keeping in the Cloud” by Darra Hoffman of UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies and “Digital Initiatives at Library and Archives Canada” by Marnie Burnham.

Access Records was one of the sponsors of the closing event, a social gathering at Yates Street Tap House.

The annual conference is organized by the Archives Association of British Columbia and Association of Records Managers and Administrators.
