English abstract

The SUV has grown from a small group of members in 1994, and over a period of ten years has been successful in the fulfillment of its primary objective, the strengthening of relations among members who are academic archivists in universities and research institutions thru the holding of annual seminars and conferences. Little has been done, sadly, towards the promotion of a very important objective, i.e., archival cooperation in the fields of documentation, bibliographic access, digitization, open access scholarly publishing, and related activities that would enhance the networking and linkage capabilities among academic archivists, particularly those in. the disadvantaged regions as well as in developing nations. The strategic development of archives in the region through collaboration, partnering schemes, and networking can create an information-rich environment, and wide opportunities to benefit from shared information resources. Part of the success of ICA-SUV will largely depend on how well its members can exploit these networking opportunities, and contribute to the development and growth of archival knowledge on a global scale. This paper aims to bring out the spirit of cooperation among the members by promoting the development of sustainable short-term projects that are doable and mutually beneficial, and thereby contribute to the increased access to archival knowledge.
