As part of Utah’s Public Service Recognition Week, we want to honor the men and women of the Utah State Archives and Records Service who work to ensure the management and preservation of and access to our governmental records.
Three employees whose work helps ensure that records and information are available to the public are Nova Dubovik, Elizabeth Perkes, and Glen Fairclough.
Nova Dubovik, executive secretary for the State Records Committee, processes the appeals that come to the Committee. She provides information to the Committee, creates minutes of meetings, and ensures that all decisions and orders are appropriately distributed and posted. Nova also develops and presents training about the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA), and helps to monitor the Open Records Portal.
Elizabeth Perkes is the Archives in-house technology specialist. She keeps computer systems running and updated. She works with vendors on systems upgrades and development. Elizabeth helps to manage the Archives website, keeping posted information current, relevant, and easy to search.
Glen Fairclough is the administrator of the Public Notice Website, which is a central website where governmental entities are required to post agendas for open and public meetings, and where they also post minutes and audio recordings. Anyone who has questions about posting requirements or technical difficulties with posting may call Glen for assistance. (801) 531-3841.
The ongoing service of these individuals is invaluable to the Archives and to the public. Join the State Archives in recognizing them along with other employees in blog posts throughout the week, both here and on our blog, Researching the Utah State Archives.
