archives and documentation management

For thousands of years, people have consciously been recording and storing information. First,  it was done in writing, later  pictures and sound. Documentation was previously stored in archives. Nowadays, the  ideas are recorded using binary code in  data storage media or in a computing cloud. Studying archives and document management gives our graduates the keys to this exceptionally  interesting  world. Studying at our Institute you can find out how modern archives – institutions, organizational units operating in most Polish institutions and digital data collections  function. We are teaching how to search for information for various purposes, scientific and practical. We also  show how the documentation should be read , also “between the lines”. We are giving an insight into the work of the administration , the application of modern document management tools, office instructions, file indices and modern office equipment. We try to make our graduates familiar with efficient office organization, and constant improvement of  document management throughout their life cycle.
