"Daria N a ł e˛ c z, Archive science – a new or an old discipline of science? The time is not long that
historical archives and current records will be in the need of employees able to efficiently deal with all the
problems connected with the creation, retrieval and preservation of electronic documents. That requires
modifications of archivist education. The author poses a question if archive science should be
a specialization within the course of studies in history, or whether it should become a separate course of
studies like library science or scientific information.
The second option provides, according to the author, for more interesting prospects of a new
discipline originating from the science of history, law, management and IT. Archive science would be
given greater chances to develop and to contribute to the global debate of the archivists. At its initial
stage, the reform should make the use of modular education system making it possible for a student to
decide whether to be a historian with archival specialization, or an archivist specialising in record
As far as teaching level is concerned, the author is in favour of introducing full scale and many
opportunities of acquiring knowledge. The first stage, for some the last one, would be the secondary
school, possibly followed by a college and university studies of B.A. and M.A. level, as well as
post-graduate studies and courses within the frames of permanent education."
