New Zealand Journal Publishes MARA Students' Articles
Two graduate students in the Master of Archives and Records Administration (MARA) program at the San José State University School of Library and Information Science, Cherity M. Bacon and Asako Shiba, have authored articles published in the most recent issue of Archifacts, the journal of the Archives and Records Association of New Zealand.
In her article, Native American Concerns about Museum and Archive Policies on Tangible and Intangible Cultural Property, Bacon focuses on the broad them of repatriation and provides an in-depth account of concerns relating to access to Native American records and cultural materials, as well as the responsibilities of archivists and museum professionals to develop appropriate polices.
Shiba provides a view of the impact of the 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami on recordkeeping in her work, The Great East Japan Earthquake and its Impact on Public Records Management.
