The Association of Canadian Archivists @ the University of British Columbia (ACA@UBC) is very proud to be hosting its Fifth Annual International Symposium, “We shape our tools, and our tools shape us.”

This year’s symposium will explore different technologies along the records lifecycle and examine how they have come to influence the way records are being created, retained and ultimately preserved for current and future generations of archivists, records managers, and users. The ACA@UBC believes that the Symposium presents an excellent opportunity for experts, visiting professionals, and students to discuss and explore the different types of technologies available to them today, as well as the different challenges that these same tools present to current and future users. This year, we will be joined by speakers from NARA, Mid-Sweden University, RIMtech Canada, and more!

On Friday, February 8th, 2013, we invite you to join us at the Frederick Wood Theatre located on UBC campus to partake in this enriching and exciting dialogue! Click here for more information on the Symposium.

On February 6th & 7th, SLAIS students are invited to participate in our Seminar Days, where invited speakers will have the opportunity to discuss in further lengths topics and interests most relevant to records management and archives today. Click here for more information on the Seminar.
