Records Management and Archiving

Records Management and Archiving is one of the top-level categories in the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB). It involves recording, organising and preserving information records held in a range of formats in an organisation, and continuing to evaluate them for retention or disposal based on their format, relevance, usage and legal requirements. Includes storage and retrieval of records and collections, digitisation, curation and preservation.

The PKSB is your map of the knowledge and skills in the library, information and knowledge professions. Use it as a self-assessment tool for professional development and to demonstrate your unique skill set to employers. It is also a framework for skills analysis, staff training and development plans.
