Advances in new technologies continue to reshape the roles and responsibilities of archivists and records managers. The speakers discuss the changing nature of archival education in the context of a study that examined more than 500 job announcements to determine what education, knowledge, and skill requirements employers of archives and records management positions desire from job candidates. The discussion includes suggestions for skills that educators should consider when developing archives and records management curricula.
