Abstract: During 2010 a number of developments took place in the Maltese archives sector, or in areas which form part of the wider knowledge management or cultural sector. The salient developments were the following: • The setting up of a new Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences (MaKS) at the University of Malta; • The setting up of a Degree Level course in both librarianship and archives on a full time basis; • The coming into force of the Malta Libraries Act; • The second National Forum on Archives and the publication of the second State of Archives Report. The National Archives is represented on most of these new set ups as the National Archivist was appointed by the Hon Minister on the Faculty Board of MaKS, is also a member of the Board of Studies of the Department of Library, Information and Archive Sciences, and is exofficio member on the Malta Libraries Council. It was also a year characterized by active involvement of the National Archives in EU-funded projects, EU Experts' Group meetings and work related with the chairing of the Association of Commonwealth Archivists and Records Managers (ACARM). During the CITRA conference held in Toledo undersigned chaired the AGM of ACARM and proposed a resolution aimed at reviewing all the operation of ACARM and its governance instruments. The resolution was unanimously approved. The process is gaining momentum and it is hoped that a new ACARM constitution will be approved during the ICA Congress in Brisbane this year.
