Rabaul volcano in 1994. His most recent book, Shifting Memories: The Nazi Past in the New Germany, deals with public memories of the Holocaust in the postwar Germanies. The fellowship is named after the historian, librarian and archivist Dr JF Watson who is best remembered for his contribution to the Historical Records of Australia series. We offer the fellowship each year to encourage the use of our collection for scholarly research. Prospective fellows can find more information on our website at www.naa.gov.au under 'About us'. 4 memento january 2002 nternational records management standard ISO 15489 is based on Australian Standard AS 4390. It was developed by members of the International Standards committee on records management, including representatives from Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States. At the launch of the world standard in Montreal on 3 October 2001, David Moldrich, Chair of both the Australian and the international records management standards committees, highlighted the very significant Australian contribution to this project. Other speaker s included Lew Bellardo, Deputy Archivist of the United States, Sarah Tyacke, Keeper of the Public Record Office in the United Kingdom and Gabrielle Blais, Director General Client Ser vices and Access Branch, National Archives of Canada. Government, businesses and other organisations will all benefit from the standard. It is designed to help them create, capture and manage their records so they can better manage their business, meet legal requirements and maintain corporate and collective memory. The international standard was launched in Australia by the Hon. Jim Carlton AO, Chairman of our Advisor y Council, at the Melbourne Museum on 16 October 2001. ISO 15489 is available from Standards Australia at www.standards.com.au. It costs around $330 for a hard copy or $300 for an electronic copy. A video of the international launch can be viewed on the website of ARMA International (the Association for Information Management Professionals) at www.arma.org. ISO 15489 is expected to replace Australian Standard AS 4390 within a few months, which will reduce the price of the standard. We'll keep you posted on when this happens. We are pleased to announce that the winner of our 2001 Frederick Watson Fellowship is Dr Klaus Neumann. Dr Neumann will be delving into our records for his research on the development of Australia's refugee policy. He will focus on three case studies: the internment of German and Austrian refugees during World War II, the acceptance of refugees from Trieste between 1953 and 1957, and the acceptance of refugees from Irian Jaya who crossed into Papua New Guinea between 1961 and 1969. The project will provide snapshots of Australia's treatment of refugees before the formulation of a refugee policy in 1977. Dr Neumann has been a lecturer or research fellow at the University of Newcastle, the University of Melbourne and the Australian National University and has written on a broad range of topics from post-colonialism in Australia and the Pacific Islands to disaster relief operations following the eruption of the Raising the international standard A new international standard on records management is set to revolutionise the way records all over the world are created, managed and kept for future use.
