Share to:

In ancient times, people only knew carriages, gigs, or rickshaws as the main means of transportation. However, thanks to the great influence of technological developments, now many people rely on online taxis such as Grab, Uber, and GoCar. Likewise with the field of library and archival science, which certainly cannot be separated from the influence of modern technology. Then what is the integration between library and archival skills with the latest technology?

This question became part of an interesting discussion at the International Seminar entitled "The Roles of Archives and Libraries in Nation Building: An Information Governance Perspective”. The international level activity is an annual routine agenda of the Library Science Study Program, Faculty of Administrative Sciences, Universitas Brawijaya (FIA UB) in the framework of scientific enrichment. In the event which was held in the Hall of Building A FIA UB 4th Floor, three speakers from three countries were presented, respectively Sherwood Wilson McCaskie (Head of Archive & Information Department, Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, Barbados), Putu Laxman Pendid PhD (Researcher from Royal Melbourne Information Technology University, Australia), and Dr. Ratih Nur Pratiwi MSi (Head of the FIA UB Library Science Study Program).
