Title: Comprehensive Report on Industrial Attachment at the National Archives of Zimbabwe 1. Introduction: My industrial attachment at the National Archives of Zimbabwe has provided me an exceptional learning platform. The six-month tenure offered an insight into varied administrative departments, their responsibilities, the impact they have on historical preservation, and knowledge enhancement of archival science. 2. Department and Roles: My first interaction was with the Public Services Department. Here, I was tasked with assisting visitors and answering their inquiries. I was also involved in the digitization process to ensure easy preservation and access. The Conservation Department came next, offering me first-hand experience in treating, mending, and caring for archive materials. My role ensured I was hands-on in cleaning, storing, and handling physical and digital formats properly. Lastly, the Education and Outreach department allowed me to be part of numerous workshops, lectures, and presentations to students and communities. My role here was to help deliver these sessions, promote usage and understanding of the archives. 3. Responsibilities and Tasks: Each department broadened my responsibilities. In the Public Services Department, tasks included assisting customers, updating the catalogue, scanning documents, retrieving files, and protecting the confidentiality and integrity of information. In the Conservation Department, I was involved in document repair and preservation, handling delicate materials, adhering to guidelines and protocols of preservation, as well as identifying specific remedial treatments for different types of historical documents. For the Education and Outreach department, I had to assist the team in organizing programs, preparing materials, establishing connections with schools, universities, and communities, and representing AZN in a professional and engaging manner. 4. Knowledge Gained: My experience at the National Archives of Zimbabwe has significantly increased my understanding of archival professional practice, and the essential role played by archives in society. I learned the importance of careful preservation methods, user service principles, and the purpose of community engagement. Compared to classroom study, this hands-on experience has instilled an in-depth understanding of how each department contributes in preserving our heritage. 5. Conclusion: To sum up, the practical exposure and experience gained through this industrial attachment at the National Archives of Zimbabwe has helped me grasp the different roles each department plays, their interconnectedness, and the overall value of sound archival management. This experience has fortified my decision to pursue a career within the archives as I believe, I can positively contribute towards the preservation and dissemination of historical knowledge. 6. Acknowledgment: My utmost gratitude towards the management team of The National Archives of Zimbabwe for this enriching and insightful opportunity, and to all the staff members who have been a part of my journey.
