Cartoon by Hinze/Scratch! Media Like any other profession, recordkeeping has its own peculiar jargon Common English words such as ‘capture’, ‘sentence’ and ‘series’ have a special meaning for recordkeepers, while unusual words such as ‘appraisal’ and ‘metadata’ frequently crop up in recordkeeping conversations. And then there are the acronyms: AFDA, CRS, DIRKS. To ensure recordkeepers throughout the Australian government speak the same language, we are developing an online glossary of recordkeeping terms. The glossary will draw together terms that occur frequently on the recordkeeping section of our website, and define them. For example, AFDA is the Administrative Functions Disposal Authority, CRS stands for Commonwealth Record Series, and DIRKS is the acronym for Designing and Implementing Recordkeeping Systems. The definitions are being compiled from a wide range of authoritative sources including legislation, inte rnatio nal standards and reputable texts, as well as our own experts and publications. The new glossary will be available in late June 2004. Look for the link on our website at www.naa.gov.au/ recordkeeping/noticeboard/summary.html The new recordspeak May 2004 MEMENTO 9
