Archives New Zealand has a project underway to replace the National Register of Archives and Manuscripts (NRAM) with a more user-friendly system, with the hope of better meeting the needs of contributors and researchers. The project will also establish improved support for contributors and more active processes for keeping NRAM fresh. Archives NZ plan to make the first phase of the new system available in May 2009 and would like to launch it with a new name.
Currently they are seeking suggestions for this new name. There is a page on the NRAM website where people can fill in a name suggestion (and there are some guidelines on this – no acronyms, keep it short, etc). People can also e-mail Tracie Almond, NRAM Project Manager (Tracie.Almond@archives.govt.nz).
