From 4 – 6 February our BARMS team: Elias Kanchon, Shahed Chowdhury, Florus Geraedts and Sigfried Janzing visited Rajshahi. We had a busy programme consisting of:

1. Archives Training at Desktop IT specifically for staffs of Rajshahi City Corporation and local entrepreneurs. Focus was on the whole proces of the archives chain from capture, use as enterprise information, disposal and making available as public information. Trainees all got a certificate.

2. Discussion with Mayor Kairuzzaman Liton about establishment of the Library, Archive and Museum at Boro Kuti building. We gave mayor advice about next steps and support.

3. Training as above to staffs of BPA and discussion with police officiers.

4. Our yearly visit to Hertitage Archives Bangladesh History at Kazla Gate. This resource centre, established by prof. Mahbubur Rahman and run by enthousiastic volunteers like mr. Moonlight, is a succesful centre for research. We discussed with Mahbubur Rahman about future support and possible connection with International Institute of Social History in the Netherlands and Mahabub searching funding from FIDA of the International Council of Archives (ICA).

After a visit to former professor of Bothany of Rajshahi University, Ibn Golam Samat, we took the train to Nilphamari on 7 February for our next programme in Jaldhaka Upazila, Balagram Union.
