CAIS E-Records Course

Many of you will remember that Dr Chris Prom, the Assistant University Archivist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (and the winner of a 2010 'Movers and Shakers in Archives' award), spent almost a year in Dundee with CAIS recently whilst he completed his Fulbright-sponsored research on electronic records issues.

Chris' experience and knowledge of this subject and his relationship with CAIS made him an obvious choice to succeed Mark Conrad of NARA as the tutor of our Electronic Records Management course. We're delighted that Chris will begin teaching with CAIS in September. Mark has stepped down to concentrate on some other projects, but he's been an incredibly popular and knowledgeable tutor and his insights on the e-records tsunami that all recordkeepers are facing have been highly valued by his students. Mark has our warmest thanks for all that he's contributed to CAIS during the last four years and we look forward to collaborating with him again in the future.

You can see Chris' thoughts as he prepares to take over the course on his blog. There's more information on the Electronic Records Management course, which can be taken as part of a Masters degree or for Continuing Professional Development, on our website.
