Barbara Reed is currently a Senior Lecturer in Recordkeeping in the Department of Librarianship, Archives and Records at Monash University. The teaching of recordkeeping in this Department is based on continuum based thinking and the faculty have articulated and developed the records continuum model and are currently working on an overarching model of information behaviour - the information continuum. Within these models, the theoretic dimensions of information and records behaviour in the electronic world are being read back into the practices and methodologies relevant to the transition between a paper and an electronic world and into the methodologies which governed our actions in purely paper based systems.
Prior to joining Monash University, she spent over 10 years as a
Director and Senior Consultant in a number of consulting organisations
- Recordkeeping Systems and Records Archives and Information
Management. Those organisations provided records and archives
management services and consultancies to a variety of organisations in
the government, corporate and private sectors, specialising in
assisting organisations to manage the change from paper-based to
electronic environments. As yet another member of the Australian
Archives `gene-pool', Barbara has written and spoken in the Australian
professional archives and records management environment.
