Venue: ATIS, Ka-228 (1st Floor), Progoti Sharani, Kuril, Dhaka-1229, (North side of Jamuna Future Park). Priority issues of the meeting will be:

  1. Development of Archival Courses, Lezar Khaza Khaled Corporation in Rajshahi, Elias Kanchon’s Archives & RTI training, IUBAT training on Archives and Records Management, cooperating with NAB, Agargaon.
  2. Books needed: 1. Digital record keeping; 2. Material preservation of hard copy (paper) archives.
  3. Regional (I)CARMS in period 1 July 2015 – 1 May 2016: Dhaka (IUBAT, Daffodil, NAB), Sylhet (SUST Dept CSE under professor Md Zaffar Iqbal), Rajshahi (Sardah Bangladesh Police Academy & Heritage Archives Bangladesh History), Khulna University CSE Department, Noakhali University Information Science & technology.

  4. The actual state of the Plan on Archives started by Shahin Abu Mokeram Khondaker.

  6. How to make a connection of NAB, BarmS, FAB, BARTICK with Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) and the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS)? Ten years ago Barm was in contact with mr. Touhiduzzaman, also NAB was in contact with Touhiduzzaman on the then Digitizing program in NAB 2001 – 2007. This is needed for empowering Government Bangladesh in using CORRECT information / data in its policy on National, Regional and Local Level.
  7. Use of BARM Blog, kept by Sigfried Janzing since 2008 should INCREASE. See:
  8. Development of Elias’ work on local level to build up awareness, just as Rabiul said: “Ilias is doing a worthwhile job by taking the ARM and RTI issues to the places where these were never discussed before. Such campaign and direct interactions at grassroot level have farsighted impact on building community level Archives & Information [RTI-act!] awareness and skills and this could be a model example for many young men and women.”
  9. Lutful Haque and Hasan Mahmud (Bondushova)’s work on writing a guide / manual / leaflet on Personal Archives.
  10. Fazle Mir’s study on Institutional history of Bengal; following Mir’s important book on Noble families of Bengal, 2013.
