#auslibchat Twitter_Wordpress September

September’s #auslibchat focused on records and archives. Catch up on the chat via Wakelet.


Are you a library or information professional interested in knowing more about records and archives? Or do you work in archives and records and want to share your knowledge? Join us for September’s #auslibchat. Here are the questions:

Q1: What do archivists, librarians and records professionals have in common?

Q2: Does your institution digitise records and archives and if so, how do they choose what to digitise?

Q3: How can we ensure the definition of a record is inclusive of Indigenous knowledge?

Q4: Why is diversity important in records and archives and how can we support it?

Q5: Deadline 2025 suggests that magnetic based audiovisual materials will be lost if not digitised by 2025. Will this impact on your organisation?
