Perhaps some of the most exciting features in the development of archival services in Africa are the regional workshops on the management of current and semi‐current records which have now become a regular event in West Africa. The workshops, which are normally organised under the umbrella of the Association of Commonwealth Archivists and Records Managers (ACARM), have taken us away from the idea of closed‐door conferences and seminars to practical problem‐solving workshops. The Association of Commonwealth Archivists and Records Managers is an organisation which aims to link archivists, archival institutions and records managers whose governments are within the Commonwealth system. Although the association has been in existence for a fairly short period its activities have already begun to be felt among Commonwealth member states and especially in West Africa.
