The National Archives has been recognized by its professional peers for helping to define the key skills needed by digital information managers. The Mandarin brought this news to our attention in their article, “Archives awarded for defining digital information management.”

The National Archives of Australia has won an accolade for its contribution to defining the key skills of digital information management. Managing information and records in a digital business context continues to be complex due to the proliferation of technologies and formats.

Any records management system, digital or otherwise, requires a system of indexing to create findability. We know that indexing against a strong, standards-based taxonomy can ensure comprehensive search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ISO/ANSI/NISO compliant taxonomies to produce comprehensive results.
