2012 ALGIM Records Management Symposium Information Professionals: the life blood of organisations
23 & 24 July 2012 James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor, Wellington
Greg Goulding, Chief Archivist and General Manager of Archives New Zealand, is set to address attendees at the 2012 ALGIM Records Management Symposium.
As Chief Archivist, Greg’s responsibilities include ensuring the preservation of government’s digital information so that it can be used for a variety of purposes. Greg championed the Government Digital Archive initiative which will transform Archives New Zealand and enable much greater use and re-use of government information for heritage purposes. Under Greg’s leadership, Archives New Zealand will continue to work closely with other agencies in the heritage sector such as the National Library and the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa to develop coordinated approaches to achieving digital heritage outcomes.
Greg has worked for Archives New Zealand and its predecessor National Archives, since 1989. As Group Manager, Government Recordkeeping from 2004 to 2009 Greg led the development and implementation of the Public Records Act 2005 which provides the basis for security of government information across the State sector. In this role he had overall responsibility for the development of recordkeeping audits and standards under the Act, as well as the appraisal function and policy and planning at Archives New Zealand. Greg has worked on ISO Records and Archives Committee ISO/TC 46/SC 11 and Australia/New Zealand IT 21 committees.
Archives New Zealand is operating in an environment that is significantly changed from just two years ago. It is now part of a much bigger and more diverse department. The economic conditions and the Government’s drive for better public services mean that the state sector needs to deliver its services more effectively and at lower cost. A more joined up, collaborative approach from government agencies is increasingly the expectation rather than the exception.
To help meet these challenges Archives New Zealand was recently re-organised around a concept of end to end information flow – from creation through to use and re-use. The need for collaboration to be successful is taken as a given and is imbued throughout the work of the organisation. One example is the International Review Group, an advisory committee made up of representatives from local and central government that ensures New Zealand has a strong influence in the development of international recordkeeping standards.
Greg’s presentation will outline the main features of Archives New Zealand’s current role in government and within the broader recordkeeping community, and will examine the contribution of collaborative endeavours such as the International Review Group.
