Congratulations Chris

We're delighted to see that our colleague Chris Prom has been named as one of the winners in the 2010 Movers & Shakers in Archives awards. The winners were announced yesterday on the Archives Next blog and the following is taken from the post there:
Chris Prom’s name is probably familiar to everyone because of his extensive work on the EAD and EAC working groups, his role in developing Archon, and his many presentations and publications, including co-editing College and University Archives: Readings in Theory and Practice. That would certainly be enough to justify a nomination, but Chris was nominated this year for something entirely different – the work he has been pursuing as Fulbright Distinguished Scholar and Research Fellow in the Centre for Archive and Information Studies at the University of Dundee...[T]he judges agreed that Chris’ contributions to the profession, as well as the dedication and diversity of his efforts, made him stand out as one of this year’s Movers and Shakers in Archives.
There's lots of information on the research that Chris has undertaken whilst at Dundee on his Practical E-Records blog and Chris and other distinguished speakers will be examining e-records issues at the seminar Practical Approaches to Electronic Records which is being held in Dundee 21 May. There's more information on the seminar here and you can download a registration form here (which should be returned to our colleague Jennifer at

Once again, our congratulations to Chris and to the other winners of an award this year.
