On September 17th, Monash University put on a wonderful event to celebrate this year being the 25th anniversary of archival and recordkeeping research and education at Monash:
In 1990 Sue McKemmish joined Frank Upward, Livia Iacovino and others in the Graduate School of Librarianship to develop an innovative, ground-breaking education program and establish the Records Continuum Research Group as a focal point for the international community of researchers, educators and practitioners exploring and utilising continuum conceptualisations of recordkeeping.
Our alumni have been an important part of that success. Many have gone on to play leadership roles within the profession, and are role models and mentors to the next generation of recordkeeping professionals.
And so we were invited to attend a cocktail reception, again with amazing catering 😉
(There was a lecture before the reception, but unfortunately I was working and unable to attend.)
It was a wonderful evening and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with friends, reconnect with classmates, lecturers and tutors, share Monash memories, and celebrate achievements. I met some new inspirational people and learnt more about the history of Monash education in this field. We had a laugh adding memories to a memory board and looking through some kind of art installation that we couldn’t quite figure out.
The highlight of the evening was of course the photobooth! I will cherish the photos I got with such influential people in my life and career. I love my GLAMR peeps!
Thank you Monash, for not only providing an extremely high level of education, but for also enabling my continued connection with Monash networks through these wonderful events.
