Setting up archives in Aboriginal communities

The Association of Canadian Archivists Special Interest Section on Aboriginal Archives (SISAA) released a “how-to” resource entitled Aboriginal Archives Guide in October 2007.

The resource was developed to:

“[…] promote the role of archives in meeting the administrative, educational, and cultural needs of Aboriginal communities, and to foster the establishment of archives in those communities. To that end, the booklet has been designed: to introduce archival concepts and terminology, to outline the basic requirements for an archival programme, to provide general advice on establishing an archival programme; and to identify where additional information, advice and assistance can be found.” (p.4)
