Project —

The stay at the Faber residence will allow me to debate, reconsider and define, what are the new professional profiles that are dedicated to the management of records, data and information. It is highly relevant to have well-defined what these professionals are in order to be able to establish work relationships, scientific research, the exchange of experiences and the improvement of the work that we all carry out. This work will be taken into account by the Association of Archivists – Records Managers in order to build communication bridges among all the professionals involved in the management of records, data and information.
