A book donation ceremony was held in the University Gallery on 19 March. Professor Laurence K. Chan from the University of Colorado, U.S. introduced his co-edited book Nobel and Lasker Laureates of Chinese Descent in Literature and Science to the guests, and presented copies of the book to Professor Joseph J.Y. Sung, Professor Kenneth Young, and Lady Gwen Kao, who have contributed chapters to the book. Additional copies were donated to the Library for retention and circulation. The ceremony took place in front of the showcase of the two Nobel laureates, Professor Sir Charles Kao and Professor Yang Chen-ning.

This newly published book introduces the lives and researches of 15 Laureates of Chinese descent, including 11 Nobel Laureates, 3 Lasker Laureates, and 1 Wolf Laureate. Professor Chan stated that the editors “hope to inspire the youth to emulate them in the hope that they too might become Laureates one day.” Among those 15 Laureates, 12 of them have close relationship with CUHK, therefore it was so meaningful to hold the ceremony in such a hall that exhibits the history, memorable moments and achievements of the University.

大學檔案的保存工作 Preservation Works of CUHK Archival Records

檔案保存工作是檔案管理的核心業務。檔案一旦被鑒定為有永久保存價值,便應作出相應的保存措施,以保百年以後人們仍能利用該檔。中大建有設備達專業標準的檔案庫,為入藏的檔案提供安身之所。然而所有檔案在正式入庫之前均經過多重處理,以防止或減慢檔案變質,延長檔案的壽命。

不同媒體(紙相片影帶光碟等)的檔案需要不同的保存方法。以紙本檔案爲例,檔案入庫前會先放置於庫内工作區。工作人員會帶上清潔的棉手套作狀況評估,檢查檔案是否曾遭浸濕,有無黴菌和蟲害等。較舊的檔案通常會先放進攝氏達零下三十度的冰箱冷藏數日至一星期,確保黴菌和蟲害無法生長;而損壞情況嚴重的檔案,需尋求修復專業人士的意見再處理。工作人員會潔净檔案表面,遇有檔案内容開始褪色變得模糊不清,會利用無酸檔案紙複印内容保存;還有移去原有的文件夾和書釘幼繩,換上專業無酸的文件夾隔頁紙相片套等,然後放進儲存盒内入庫。此程序既能保存檔案本身狀況,亦確保其他已入庫檔案不會受到外來破壞。

以上只是簡單介紹一般保存工作的程序,實際操作可能會複雜得多。大學檔案現正處理大量紙本檔案和舊相片,務求令這些大學珍貴資產得到妥善的保護。

Preservation is at the heart of archives management. Once the record has been appraised as having archival value for long term retention, appropriate preservation measures should be taken to ensure people will be still able to use the record after a hundred years. CUHK has setup an archives repository with facilities with professional standards to provide a safe home for the archives. In fact, before putting the records into the storage, preservation works are necessary in order to prolong their useful life.

Records in different media (paper, photo, video tape, CD, etc.) require different preservation methods. Taking paper records as an example, the records will be placed in the processing area of the repository first, then the staff will wear clean cotton gloves to check the physical conditions of the records, like seeing whether they are water soaked, or infected with mould and pests. Old records are usually placed into freezer with a temperature of -30°C for a few days to a week to make sure the mould and pests cannot grow. Records with serious damages are needed to be reviewed and processed by professionals. The staff will clean the dusty surface of the records. In case that the content of the document is fading out or becoming illegible, the document will be photocopied by using acid-free archival paper. The original folders, staples, clips will be removed and replaced by containers with archival quality such as acid-free folders, papers, and photo sleeves, etc., finally they are put into archival boxes for storage. Such a process not only prolongs the life of the newly acquired records, it also safeguards the conditions of the stored records that will not be affected by the new ones.

The above case is just a brief introduction of the archives preservation works, and the real-life practice can be much more complicated. The University Archives is currently processing a large amount of records and photos to ensure these precious University assets are properly preserved.

英國國家檔案館藏中大檔案 CUHK Records in The National Archives (TNA) of the United Kingdom

大學檔案組除了從中大各單位搜求檔案,亦會在校外徵集或購入中大相關文獻,以增補館藏,為研究者帶來便利。由於香港曾爲英國之殖民地,許多香港事務的檔案可以在英國國家檔案館中找到,當中包括不少有關中大成立和發展的檔案。大學檔案組目前已從該館購入與中大相關的檔案三十餘個,時間跨度為1950年代至1980年代,主要來自兩個檔案類別:
•    BW 90: 海外高等教育大學校際委員會:書信及公文
•    CO 1045: 殖民地部及其他部門:教育顧問郭克時爵士公文
内容相當豐富,例如:五、六十年代香港專上學院的發展、中文大學的籌備過程、香港大學在中大發展的角色、首任校長的遴選和候選人名單、中大醫學院成立之背景等(詳細内容請看下表)。這些中大檔案連同其他從英國國家檔案館購入的香港事務檔案,可以透過大學圖書館網頁的「數碼館藏」,在校内瀏覽。
大學檔案組會繼續留意英國國家檔案館和其他單位收藏的中大相關文獻,如檔案已經公開,我們會盡量收錄。

In addition to collecting records from the University offices, CUHK Archives also collects and purchases CUHK-related records beyond the campus in order to fill the gap of our collections and bring convenience to researchers. Since Hong Kong was once a British colony, many records of Hong Kong affairs can be found in The National Archives (TNA) of the United Kingdom, including documents about the establishment and development of CUHK. CUHK Archives has purchased over 30 records from TNA. The time span of the archives is from 1950s to 1980s, and most of the items are from these two record series:
•   BW 90: Inter-University Council for Higher Education Overseas: Correspondence and Papers.
•  CO 1045: Colonial Office and other departments: Papers of Sir Christopher Cox, Educational Adviser.
The content includes: the development of the Hong Kong post-secondary education in 1950s to 1960s, the establishment of CUHK, the role of the University of Hong Kong in CUHK development, selection and appointment of the first Vice-Chancellor (with the list of candidates), the background of setup of the CUHK medical school, etc (please check the table below for details). With other records of Hong Kong affairs purchased from TNA, these records are now uploaded to the “Digital Collection” on CUHK Library’s website for on-campus access.
CUHK Archives will keep an eye on any CUHK-related records kept by TNA and other units. We will try our best to collect as many open records as possible.

香港檔案法立法諮詢 Consultation on Archives Law Legislation in Hong Kong

檔案記載著機構的政策、決定、和活動,是機構極重要的資源。政府檔案更關乎社會管治和公民權益,故有需要加强管理,以確保檔案得到妥善記錄和保存,供日後取用、參考。世界不少國家和地區均有制定檔案法,而香港長久以來籍由行政指令、指引和刊物代替法例,規管政府檔案的管理。近年社會各界對制定檔案法的訴求益增,有見及此,香港法律改革委員會於2013年成立檔案法小組委員會,就此課題作深入研究。

日前(12月6日)小組委員會發表諮詢文件,就現行公共檔案管理制度是否需要改革,如認為需要的話,則採用何種改革方案為佳,諮詢公眾意見。文件中小組委員會研究數個司法管轄區的法律和作業方法,特別是澳大利亞、英格蘭、愛爾蘭、新西蘭和新加坡,臚列其觀察和初步看法外,還提出12條諮詢問題,例如檔案處的行政及運作、檔案移交檔案管理機關制度、公共檔案管理制度的涵蓋範圍等。

小組委員會初步認為有理據支持在香港制定檔案法,但實施上亦有難處,例如香港缺乏檔案管理專才、增加公務員工作量、處理電子檔案挑戰。諮詢文件未有提及疏忽處理政府文件的罰則;另外,對於應否涵蓋公共機構,因難以決定「公共機構」的範圍及公共機構是否已準備就緒,小組委員會建議可不時列舉應受規管的特定機構,及以「針對個別情況處理」方式監督其檔案管理情況。

諮詢期至2019年3月5日為止。

Records are vital resources of an organization and they document the policies, decisions, and activities, etc. Government records may contain importance information of governance and civil rights. For such records to maintain their value, they must be properly created and managed to ensure their authenticity and usability. Most of the countries or jurisdictions have archives legislation, and in contrast Hong Kong Government has been using administrative directives, guidelines and publications to regulate the management of Government. In response to the social urge of archives law legislation in recent years, the Archives Law Sub-committee of the Law Reform Commission was setup in 2013 to review the situation and make recommendation.

The Sub-committee has just released (6 December) the consultation paper to invite public views on whether reform of the current public records management regime is needed, and, if so, what kind of reform is to be preferred. The Sub-committee has studied the laws and practices of a number of jurisdictions, in particular, Australia, England, Ireland, New Zealand and Singapore, and has set out its observations and provisional views, as well as asked 12 consultation questions for instance the governance of the Government Records Service, and transfer of records to archival authority, and coverage of public records management regime, etc., to engage as much of the public as possible.

The Sub-committee’s provisional views are that there are considerations in favour of the enactment of an archives law in Hong Kong, but there are also practical concerns over its implementation, such as shortage of archives management professionals, workload pressures on civil servants, challenges of electronic records management, etc. The consultation paper does not mention the penalties for unauthorized destruction of public records. As regards the scope of public bodies to be covered, the Sub-committee considers a "bespoke" approach and to “enumerate from time to time specific bodies that should be subject to the public records management regime” since there is no universal approach on the definition of public bodies, and the individual circumstances of the public bodies must be carefully considered before imposing on them any uniform mandatory records management regime.

The consultation period will end on 5 March 2019.

大學檔案的研究支援服務 University Archives’ Research Support Service

大學檔案除了致力蒐集、整理、維護具永久保留價值的中大檔案,更有一重要任務——推廣中大檔案的使用,支援校内外單位與個人的教學、研究、出版、甚至影視製作等工作。  

例如最近由中大新亞書院、藝術系、藝術系系友會出版的《趙鶴琴》一書,介紹這位在中大任教多年的著名篆刻書畫家生平,並選刊其印章作品、文章及講義等,為研究趙氏藝術成就的重要參考著作。《趙》書編輯小組得知中大校長鈐章為趙先生所刻(連結),於是聯絡大學檔案搜集相關資料,而大學檔案亦積極協助,終尋得藏於中大傳訊及公共關係處的「香港中文大學校長之章篆刻設計書」(1964),另有趙鶴琴書中大校訓「博文約禮」式樣 (1964) 及趙鶴琴潤例 (1959, 1963, 1968) 等,收錄《趙》書中。  

如閣下需要大學檔案的研究支援,歡迎聯絡我們

In addition to collect, organize and preserve CUHK records that have enduring value, the University Archives also strives to promote the use of the historical records by supporting teaching, research, publishing, and audio-visual production activities of the University community and external users.  

For instance, Chao Ho-chin, a book recently published by CUHK’s New Asia College, Department of Fine Arts, and the Alumni Association of Fine Arts Department, which introduces the life of the famous seal carving artist and painter who had taught in CUHK for years. The book collects Mr. Chao’s seal carving works and reprints his articles and lecture notes, etc. The editorial team of the book had contacted the University Archives for collecting relevant information of one of the Mr. Chao’s work – the CUHK Vice-Chancellor’s Seal (link). With help of the University Archives, the preliminary proposal of the seal (1964), the calligraphy of CUHK motto – “Bo Wen Yue Li” written by Mr. Chao (1964), as well as the price list (1959, 1963, 1968) were found in the Communications and Public Relations Office of the University. The images of the above-mentioned items were presented in the book.

If you have research enquiries relating to the history of CUHK, please feel free to contact us.
