CNDRA Begins Capacity Building Today
Monrovia, June 26, 2018 - The Center for National Documents Records Agency/National Archives (CNDRA) Tuesday, June 26, 2018 began a five day in house training workshop intended to sharpen the skills of twenty two staff on the inspection of public records and document management. The training also seeks to provide participants basic techniques in general records management and enhance the skills for technical capacity of archival employees at the agency. Addressing the start of the training workshop CNDRA Director General C. Neileh Daitouah reminded employees of their statutory mandate as a record agency of government on which he said the training is focused. “Our mandates are to ensure that government documents are preserved, kept and made available when they are required,” he noted. Director Daitouah acknowledges that more needs to be done which he said should start with employees of the agency. “When we tour the building, we see the way people treat documents as such, we have to start with ourselves beginning with my office,” Daitouah observed. He averts that the agency over the last 12 years cannot speak to the status of documents in the withholding of ministries and agencies which he avail the agency will try to address upon the completion of the training. Director Daitouah is meanwhile challenging archival staff to take serious the five day training so as to achieve the aim of the training noting, “There is a lot of work we have to do.” Following the completion of the training, trainees will be used to inspect public records kept at ministries and agencies across the country. CNDRA Technical Director Robert Cassel revealed that the purpose for the training is to set the stage for the construction of a multi- purpose center at its 12th Street Compounds in Sinkor. “To construct the center, you have to inspect the record out there access their conditions before deciding on how to proceed in removing the accessed records to the central location,” he noted. Among others, techniques being taught includes, how an archival employee can locate documents in lesser time, be able to distinguish the difference between a document and a record, to develop an index and filling system as well as to able to sort and file document.
We-Care Foundation Donates Books to National Public Library
We-Care Foundation, a local NGO operating in the country donated several cartoons of assorted books to the National Public Library on Ashman Street, Monrovia. Delivering the books recently, We-Care Foundation Library Supervisor Girttne Russell said despite the donation being his institution’s first to the National Public Library, he wants it be consider as the initial of several others. “We operate a library but we are not able to use all of the books we receive from donors as a result we have to share with schools and other libraries. As we speak, we are awaiting the arrival of another container of books from “Book Aid International” for distribution to needed institutions,” Russell revealed. While cost is not attached, the books included English, literature, recent books on policing and a wide range of readers. The library which offers free research services to the public is managed and operated by the Center for National Documents and Records Agency (CNDRA). CNDRA is an institution of government that is among others cloth with the statutory mandate to register and process marriage certificate, land deeds, administrative authorizations and is as well the custodian of all national documents and records. Receiving the books, the Director General of CNDRA Neileh Daitouah lauded the foundation describing the donation as one of the most important steps as money cannot replace the knowledge and success that comes through education. “If you were to give me one thousand dollar today, and one book, the book will have a long lasting effect on my life than the money, noted the CNDRA boss. He views the donation as being in the support of government’s Pro-Poor agenda which he interprets as one that is intended to take people from mat to mattress, introduce and develop a system that will provide for the Liberia’s less privilege population rather than the privilege. He wants students to make use of the library with the hope that the reading material will have a lasting effect on the lives of users. Meanwhile, Director Daitouah has unveiled plans by the agency to decentralize the operations of the public library to other parts of the country. This he said is in direct response to the growing needs of children in the rural parts of the country many of whom he noted do not have access to test books nor library for research purposes. He however did not say when the decentralization exercise will begin. -30-
