Archives contribute to a civilised society by not only preserving memory and identity, but also by holding individuals and institutions to account. University archives are particularly well-placed to achieve these goals through rigorous collaborations with academic and professional staff both on-and across-campuses. Moreover, they can pass on archival values and skillsets by embedding themselves within teaching and learning programs across all disciplines. There are many university archives around Australia that are already actively engaged in innovative student-centred projects, many of whom are both passionately committed to spearheading change in the collaborative workspace as well as encouraging students to take a more hands-on approach to knowledge-making. If they are to continue to act as agents of change and accountability, university archives of the future may need to develop more courageous methods of applying their institution’s records in the teaching and learning space.
