1. The goal of the study

The goal of this study is to survey and analyze manuals and textbooks that can be used for training in archives administration and records management. In some countries there is an obvious need for comprehensive textbooks suitable for archival training, and this study will therefore be of interest to teachers of archival administration in preparing their own bibliographies. The bibliography in this study will be especially useful in developing countries.

One drawback of this kind of review is that it becomes outdated very quickly because of rapid developments in the archival field and new literature constantly being published. Thus, the bibliography will need continuous updating. The participants at the Symposium in The Hague expressed their interest in a new and updated version of the 1978 "Basic International Bibliography of Archives Administration".
