Cooperation between Museums and Archives: The Museum and Archives of Samoa

Comma (2007), 2007, (3-4), 55–60.

Abstract

As a country with an oral traditional and strong living culture, the need for the establishment of a national museum and archives was only recently recognized, with the Museum opening in 1999 and a small joint museum and archives staff appointed. Though special accommodation for archives was only secured in 2001 and the building arrangements continue to be problematical, and despite limited resources, there have been positive developments: consultancy has been available from Australian sources and structured records management guidance and training has been provided to ministries. Customer services have improved with services tailored to customers' needs.
