Archives & Records Management

The University of the West Indies (Mona Campus)
Department of Library and Information Studies

The principal objective of this Programme is to provide for the first time post graduate level education in the fields of archives administration and records management. Currently there exists no formal programme in the Caribbean for educating archivists. Training is available externally in North America and the United Kingdom at high costs and this leads to serious limitation to the development of the profession in the region. More importantly, this programme will provide a dedicated space for the academic analysis of Caribbean memory and recordkeeping practices, which are emerging out of the realities of the Caribbean experience. This programme is offered in a dual mode (face-face & online).
