The new Director of the Expatriate Archive Centre, Kristine Racina, is attending this year's KVAN-dagen together with Archivist Rosita Arnts. KVAN (Koninklijke Vereniging van Archivarissen in Nederland - Royal Association of Archivists in the Netherlands) is the professional organisation for archivists and records managers in the Netherlands.
The 2013 KVAN-dagen is being held in De Bazel in Amsterdam on 10 and 11 June. The programme is dedicated to the choices and challenges being faced by information professionals. More and more archival institutions are having to rethink their role and identity in a changing world, with shrinking budgets and new technological developments.
The Expatriate Archive Centre were fortunate to secure two places for such a popular day. This year there are around 400 attendees, with the event being so well-subscribed that there was even a waiting list.
Reports from the day are being posted on the Archive 2.0 website, or you can follow @KVANDagen on Twitter for more information and updates.
