Each participant conducted competence test with materials including personality, archiving knowledge, archival practices, interviews and job reports.
UGM Head of Archives, Drs. Machmoed Effendi, M. Hum, expressed his pride and appreciation. The UGM achievement this time added to the previous achievements. Archivist Zaenudin, A. Md, was the runner up of Archivists Model in 2009. In 2007, UGM Archives was selected the Best Archives at the National Level. "The archival institution chosen as the best is not allowed to participate in the following year.
Further, Machmoed Effendi explained that UGM Archive is now the member of the International Council Archives (ICA) on the Institutional Research University Archives section with membership number C-2388/2010-ICA, making UGM Archives the only university archival institution in Indonesia and third in ASEAN. "By becoming an ICA member, UGM researchers who want to get data from archival institutions that are members of ICA no longer have to come to those archival institutions. They simply access the data from the UGM Archive," he concluded.
