|Titel||Hurley's common practice rules for the documentation of archives & other records|
|Plaats uitgave||Victoria. Australie|
HCPR began as a project mandated by the Australian Society of Archivists in the mid-1990s for the purpose of developing an Australian Common Practice Manual(ACPM). The idea was to produce a local implementation (so far as possible) of ISAD(G), then in development, using a normalisation of descriptive rules from selected Australian archives programmes. The Manual would then cross-walk these rules with those from ISAD(G). At the time, the ICA Commission preparing ISAD(G), on which I was then the Australian representative, envisaged similar local adaptations in every country. As we had expressed (and continued to express while I was there) disquiet about the direction which ISAD(G) had taken, it was felt to be important that an Australian manual should demonstrate how far we were compliant with international theory and practice as well as highlighting differences we felt to be beneficial but in no way heterodox – an application, in David Bearman’s terms, of a variant method to achieve the agreed outcome or recordkeeping requirement.
The ISAD(G) framework was embodied in a Statement of Principles which was the basis for the Commission’s early work. Australian objections to these principles was sufficiently loud to result in my joining the Commission but at the first meeting I attended (Stockholm, 1993) it was decided almost at once not to review them but instead to treat them as an “historical” document. The opportunity to follow an agreed path was lost from that point on.
