MPSR Project Personnel Project Director Anne Thurston has been working to define international solutions for the management of public sector records for nearly three decades. Between 1970 and 1980 she lived in Kenya, initially conducting research and then as an employee of the Kenya National Archives. She joined the staff of the School of Library, Archive and Information Studies at University College London in 1980, where she developed the MA course in Records and Archives Management (International) and a post-graduate research programme. Between 1984 and 1988 she undertook an onsite survey of record-keeping systems in the Commonwealth. This study led to the foundation of the International Records Management Trust to support the development of records management through technical and capacity-building projects and through research and education projects. General Editor Michael Roper has had a wide range of experience in the management of records and archives. He served for thirty-three years in the Public Record Office of the United Kingdom, from which he retired as Keeper of Public Records in 1992. He has also taught on the archives courses at University College London and the University of British Columbia, Canada. From 1988 to 1992 he was Secretary General of the International Council on Archives and since 1996 he has been Honorary Secretary of the Association of Commonwealth Archivists and Records Managers (ACARM). He has undertaken consultancy missions and participated in the delivery of training programmes in many countries and has written extensively on all aspects of records and archives management.
