CASTILLO GUEVARA, Jorge del  y  MARTIN, Sarah Paz. General reflections on the National Archives System of the Republic of Cuba from the perspective of the Records Continuum Model. Investig. bibl [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.81, pp.89-110.  Epub 21-Abr-2020. ISSN 2448-8321.

Cuba is in the process of restructuring its economic and social development model. The National Archives System of the Republic of Cuba must play a leading role in this regard. However, its management model, based on the most traditional theoretical approaches, makes it difficult to respond effectively to the demands and requirements of contemporary Cuban society. This article analyzed such system, based upon the Australian continuum model of documents and three of its principles enunciated by Frank Upward. Documentary analysis was used as a research method and this facilitated a better comprehension of the Australian thinking continuum, as well as the identification of those qualities recognized as strengths for any archival system in the postcustodial era. In addition, the main legal and procedural tools of the Cuban National Archive System were reviewed, which allowed examination of some aspects that reflected its marked custodial and patrimonial approach.
