Recent years have seen instructional technology and online learning join academic computing, administrative computing and library services as a major focus of investment and planning on campus. Many universities are now embracing the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in search for more efficient and competitive processes both in delivery of lectures as well as in administrative processes. This paper shares the experiences of a public University of China in implementing an archives management System (AMS), challenges faced, how it tackled these challenges, what has been achieved so far and important lessons learnt in the process. The paper concludes by proposing improvements in implementing similar systems in other institutions in the continent.
