Abstract:This article provides a summary of the major issues addressed during General Conferences of the Eastern and Southern African Regional Branch of the International Council on Archives (ESARBICA) held between 1969 and 2005. It discusses some of the major resolutions passed during the General Conferences, showing the progress that has been made in implementing them within ESARBICA member States. Areas discussed include the development of archival services, access to archival collections, the placement of archival institutions and the status of national archivists, technological developments, the preservation and conservation of archival collections, the training of archivists and records managers, archival legislation, the restitution of migrated archives, the management of audiovisual materials, archives and records management in the private sector, and the collection of oral sources. The article concludes by suggesting that, as a professional association, ESARBICA has been a major instrument in the development of archives and records management programmes and services in the region.
