Memorandum of Understanding

The Australian Society of Archivists maintains cooperative initiatives with two other respected professional bodies related to record keeping, i.e. with the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIMPA).

In order to identify and reflect the common professional interests and to clarify the kind of cooperation a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been established between the three organisations.
