Some of us Roundtablers were honoured to be speakers at a conference at Beijing’s Renmin University in early June. Keynoting at that event was distinguished archivist and Roundie friend Hans Hofman.
Hans’s talk was on a subject many of us have been concerned about for a while. As many of our methods, assumptions and attitudes become increasingly out of touch with the realities of the world we are working in, are we recordkeeping professionals ever going to truly rise to the challenge? Hans examined the evidence and drew some of his own conclusions in this sobering, but critically important contribution to the conversation.Hofman_Rising to the challenge- Beijing June 2015-1 (PPT, 10.6 MB)
