Responding to a changing cohort profiles in Records and Archives Management education: A collaborative case study

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review


This paper presents a recent collaboration between the CSU Regional Archives and CSU’s School of Information Studies to develop a set of case studies for a Records and Archives Management specialisation subject offered to both under- and post-graduate students in the
School. Due to a number of catalyst events in 2017, including staffing, high enrolments and subject internationalisation, a need to refine the assessment task was identified. From this, the author collaborated with staff at the Regional Archives to develop a set of three case studies for students to use for their major assessment task. The effectiveness of the collaboration is evaluated and next steps are outlined.

Conference13th Research Applications in Information and Library Studies Seminar
Abbreviated titleCreating and Learning Together: Interdisciplinary Teaching and Research
OtherRAILS is the Australasian Conference on Research Applications in Information and Library Studies, the main Australasia’s gathering of researchers, educators, and professionals in information and library studies and related disciplines. RAILS has been held annually since 2004. The 13th RAILS conference will be hosted by the School of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences, University of South Australia, and held at UniSA’s City West Campus, Adelaide, South Australia, from 28-30 November 2017.

Many of today’s societal and economic challenges requires research and teaching efforts across disciplinary boundaries, which calls for new approaches and questions within information and library studies. Researchers, educators, practitioners and students are encouraged to submit papers on the conference theme, “Creating and Learning Together: interdisciplinary teaching and research”, which focuses on building partnerships between researchers, practitioners, doctoral students, and educators to ensure that a culture of interdisciplinary research and teaching is nurtured in the information studies field.
