Monash University - 'Knowledge Management Excellence Award'

We have a long-standing relationship with Monash in various ways and support the Caulfield School of IT in sponsoring a 'Knowledge Management Excellence Award’ for postgraduate students.

Christopher Stueven is based in Melbourne as a Records Officer at the University of Melbourne Records Services and is currently in his final semester of a Master of Business Information Systems (Libraries, Recordkeeping & Archives) at Monash University. At the University of Melbourne Chris assists with the maintenance of recordkeeping systems and procedures, and provides advice on the disposal requirements of records throughout the University. Previously he has contributed to archival projects at Rhizome Digital and Sandringham Hospital in Victoria, alongside participation in a range of volunteer archival schemes at the Public Record Office of Victoria, National Archives of Australia and The Alfred Hospital.

During his time at Monash University Chris has been focusing on the capacity of records to move through personal and institutional contexts, into areas where parts of the community have demanded stakeholder status. This has involved particular attention given to the progress of the Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse.

He is also a founding member of GLAMR New Professionals in Victoria and is presently a member of the Victorian Branch Committee of the Australian Society of Archivists.
