MORO CABERO, Manuela  and  LLANES PADRON, Dunia. The importance of standardization in the professional practice of the archive specialist. Investig. bibl [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.74, pp.193-223. ISSN 2448-8321.

The postmodern Archivology exhibits the influence of standards that guide and regulate file and records management. Nowadays, the technical processes of information and documentation, services management, information centers and records management systems are founded on standards that allow systematic, uniform and effective operations. The aim of this work is to identify, describe and categorize the standards addressing content representation and retrieval, and the continuity and preservation of digital resources, the quality review of systems, business excellence and records management systems. Largely descriptive, this study focuses on identification of these standards and their implementation in Archivology curricula. The modern society requires professionals who are able to work in diverse workplace environments, possessed of the skills needed to implement all manner of operations and processes entailed in information management. As a result, the professional profile of the Archive specialist should match standardized, homogeneous models that include all kinds of practices.

Keywords : Standardization; Digital preservation; Representation and retrieve content; Quality and excellence management; Records management.
