Two cheers for the records continuum

Abstract.

The chapter describes the origins of the records continuum model within its professional, higher education and personal contexts. A part sympathetic, part critical commentary follows, which notes in particular its Australian reception, the judgements of international experts, the importance of clear articulation and the challenge of expressing the model graphically. Finally, without diminishing the problem of assessment criteria and the author’s own reservations, the singular achievement of its all-embracing modelling is acknowledged.
