Graham Jackson

Archivist, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI)

Graham Jackson has worked as an Archivist at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) since 1997 and is currently the client manager for various public bodies, advising on the management and disposal of their records as well as access to historical information. Aside from his profound love of dusty records lying in dark basements, Graham likes dressing up in armour as an extra on the Game of Thrones TV series (needless to say, his loyalty to Ned Stark and his family is unswerving, coming before even his solemn duty under the Public Records Act (NI) 1923...)

Implementing Retention and Disposal Actions on RecordsNI – a Journey


The NI Government Departments have an EDRMS which manages over 40 million records and 13,500 users, and we have approved Retention and Disposal Schedules. 

So, what next? 

How do we carry out activities like appraisal, sensitivity reviewing and disposal, with no budget, limited resources and in a changing digital environment? How can we protect our records through their lifecycle, while still meeting legislative obligations and public expectations? 

This talk will examine the collaborative journey that the NI Government Departments and PRONI must take to develop and implement the policies and procedures needed to get our records from closure to disposal.
