About Keeping Archives

Keeping Archives, a key publication of the ASA has evolved over the years. Originally self-published in 1987, it served as a foundational resource for archive management. The second edition, released in 1993 incorporated changing concepts and approaches in light of evolving organisational structures and technology-based record formats. In 2008, the third edition expanded its scope to encompass digital archives and technology-driven preservation, access, and education. It also offered essential resources for archives, including downloadable templates and checklists.
