Earlier this month I visited Kazakhstan to give a series of lectures at the Presidential Archives as part of the Second Annual Summer School for Young Archivists, as well as in Shymkent at the Regional Archives. I had an amazing trip and really enjoyed meeting new colleagues, sharing my experiences working here in the US, and traveling around a new country and region of the world I’d not been to before. Here are links to my slides from each of the presentations I made:
- June 11: Introduction to the Archival Environment in the United States
- June 11: Archival Practices in the United States: National Standards
- June 11: Archival Process Management in US Repositories
- June 13: Organization of Archival Records in the United States
- June 13: Introduction to Electronic Records Management
- June 14 (Shymkent): Archival Principles and Practices in the United States
I want to extend many thanks to my hosts from the US Embassy in Kazakhstan, especially Elina Akhtiyarova for inviting me on this trip and coordinating everything. Thanks are also due to the Director of the Kazakhstan Presidential Archives, Boris Japarov and Bastar Eskarayev, the Head of Archives in the South Kazakhstan Region who both hosted me at their institutions. Thank you so much! Рақмет!
