I'm a relatively new archivist (1 year) with no formal archival or humanities sector education/training, and I'm still getting my head around the complexities of describing public records in our holdings to both maintain trust in the veracity of these records and also to ensure they are easily accessible within the constraints of our online finding aid. After a couple of decades working in administration, I gained an Information Technology degree as a mature student. I then worked as a business analyst in both a global business and a couple of NZ government organisations for a few years before changing career direction yet again. Before registering I did not know who Nicholas Carr or Slavoj Žižek were, and I thank Donelle for bringing them to my attention.
