Prom Wins Archival Award

Apr 28, 2010

Christopher Prom is one of four winners of the third annual Movers and Shakers in Archives awards.  Sponsored by the ArchivesNext blog, these awards are intended to recognize people or organizations in the United States who are innovative, creative, and making a difference in the archival world.

Prom is an assistant university archivist and associate professor of library administration at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar and Research Fellow.  He was nominated for the work he has been pursuing while on sabbatical at the Centre for Archive and Information Studies at the University of Dundee in the UK.  His project there is titled "Practical Methods to Identify, Preserve, and Provide Access to Electronic Records."

This year's award judges agreed that Prom's contributions to the profession, as well as the dedication and diversity of his efforts, made him stand out as one of this year’s Movers and Shakers in Archives.
