The BAPQ Call for Submissions for Corporate Memory Issue

·         What happens when the person responsible for a Corporation's history leaves/retires and takes their knowledge with them?

·         How do we preserve and share Corporate Memory and stories with others?

·         How do archives shape corporate memory, correct corporate "mismemories" or flawed memories, and assemble corporate legends?

·         What tools/processes do we use to encourage employees who retain corporate memory at our institutions to share their corporate memories with the archives? (out boarding process for senior leadership, soliciting records, training in records retention, creating awareness about records that come to the archives)?

·         How do we demonstrate the importance of corporate memory in the establishment of a corporate archives to its stakeholders and leadership?
