The Catholic Archives Society (Great Britain & Ireland) has digitised and published previous issues of their journal online.
They can be accessed at: http://catholicarchivesociety.org/publications/journal.
An article from the 2011 journal, “Access to Archives in Civil and Canon Law”, by Mgr Gordon Read, caught my eye…..it might be a useful resource in our attempts to convince and reassure Leaders regarding the transfer of ‘closed’ material to the Archives…..
The Australian Society of Archivists’ Conference is coming up in a couple of weeks. The theme is ‘Archives on the Edge’ and it will address cutting edge issues. Or as the conference program puts it – “Are we as practitioners of the noble art of keeping, balanced on the edge of organised chaos, chaotic order or eventual oblivion?”
The Conference will be in Hobart, where is was snowing a few days ago, so I will rug up for my trip.
I’ll report when I get back on any insights as to how to keep it all under control!
