Darius Bujokas, from the Lietuvos vyriausiojo archyvaro tarnyba (Office of the Chief Archivist of Lithuania), is the new Country Manager for Lithuania – here is his introductory message:
My name is Darius Bujokas. I am the new country manager of Lithuania (some of you met me in country manager meeting in Madrid in May). I work in the Office of Chief Archivist of Lithuania This institution is not an archive and we do not preserve documents (this is the line I usually write when responding to requests from clients on Facebook and e-mail 😊 ). Our Office is coordinating Lithuanian archival system, preparing legal acts on document management, representing Lithuanian archives in various international institutions etc. I hold a master degree in History from Vilnius university. I am working in the Office since 2014, before that I worked in the Museum of Energy and Technology in Vilnius for 2 years. At the Office I am responsible for Exhibitions and other educational events, that is organized by Lithuanian archives, public relations, process of digitization and I am also one of the few people that administrate the webpage and accounts on the social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) of our Office.
