Academy names Archivist
(released 9/27/2005)

Academy's Maltz Named to National Archives' Advisory Committee

Andy Maltz, director of the Academy's Science and Technology Council, is one of 20 persons appointed by the Archivist of the United States to the National Archives' Advisory Committee on the Electronic Records Archives.

Dr. Kenneth Thibodeau, director of the Electronic Records Archives Program, announced the formation of the committee last week. The group will advise and make recommendations to Archivist of the United States Allen Weinstein on issues related to the development, implementation and use of the Electronic Records Archives system.

"As we move forward to making the Electronic Records Archives a reality, it is more important than ever that we reach out to obtain advice from a broad spectrum of experts," Thibodeau said. "The advisory committee will provide an ongoing structure for bringing together experts in computer science and information technology, archival science and records management, information science, the law, history, genealogy, and education."

Maltz said that Phil Feiner, chair of the Science and Technology Council's Digital Motion Picture Archival Project Committee, would serve as an alternate, attending some of the National Archives committee meetings and "sharing other duties as appropriate."
