Records and Archives + Professional Development
SLASC Program

Student Group

In this talk, JonLuc Christensen introduces the audience to the fundamentals of Records Management and Archiving to understand the areas of overlap (collision) between the two fields. This is followed by a discussion of the competing interests between the fields and how to mitigate conflict between their respective professionals. While the talk is geared towards Records Managers and Archivists, and uses these fields as examples, the presentation is developed to be broad enough to apply to any subfield or workplace of the library and information profession. The discussion broadens into the general topics of Change Management and the necessity for information professionals with a broad range of skills, knowledge, and training. In order to accomplish this, Christensen concludes by discussing the value of professional development and his own personal path of professional growth and the great value that it has brought him in his short 3 years within the profession. He then provides key tips and guidance for how you can get involved and grow professionally.
