Ciandrini, Paola. 2018. “Zen and the Art of Archival Maintenance. Hybrids and Resilients”. JLIS.It 9 (3):171-99. https://doi.org/10.4403/jlis.it-12485.


Reflection on the maintenance of the contemporary archivist, in hybrid and resilient manner. Hybrid because the healthy contamination with computer science, jurisprudence, archival diplomatics and digital records is an indispensable condition to consciously face the profession of archivist and records manager. Resilient because the understanding and adaptation to a digital world - or a world that is increasingly moving towards digital tools – is key to contemporaneity and protection of memory. The text illustrates how the comparison between knowledges is the key to realize conscious projects of training, teaching, updating and professional development. The paper analyzes some case studies: the MIP Paperless PA course, the projects PoliDe Politecnico Dematerializzazione, Archimista and Ibridamente.
