Reflection Committee

The Reflection Committee was established by a decision of the IBI Executive Council during its 54th session in April 1986. The Committee's purpose was to evaluate the present situation of the Organization and to reflect on future orientations and prospects. The Committee was composed of former Presidents of the governing bodies of the IBI - the General Assembly or the Executive Council. The series contains correspondence and records of the meeting of the Committee.

Committee for the Revision of the IBI Convention

The Committee for the Revision of the IBI Convention (REVCO) was an ad hoc committee of the IBI General Assembly. The Committee was convoked when a new revision of the Convention was being discussed. The subseries in particular contains examples of possible revisions to the Convention and to the internal regulations of the Organization since its creation. The subseries consists only of working documents from the Committee’s work in the 1980s.

General Assembly Sessions

The General Assembly met for 13 ordinary sessions and 6 extraordinary sessions. The documents include information on: decisions made at each session; financial reports; and, reports on the activities and budget of the Organization. Records from the 8th session of the General Assembly are missing from the series.

External relations records

The External Relations service in the Cabinet of the Director-General was responsible for maintaining relations with member countries, non-member countries and organizations operating in the field of informatics (with or without formal cooperation agreements with the Organization). The service kept up-to-date information on the IBI's relations with these actors as well as reports on shared activities. The files consist primarily of correspondence exchanged between the IBI and the country or organization. Beyond letters, telegrams and telexes, the files include reports, brochures, and copies of agreements. The series has been arranged into three subseries:
-IBI/6/1/1 Governmental organization files
-IBI/6/1/2 Non-governmental organization files
-IBI/6/1/3 Country files

Reference documents

The series consists mostly of summaries of the decisions taken and agendas for the meetings of the General Assembly and Executive Board. Although the material partly duplicates information found elsewhere, the series was retained to compensate for gaps in the subfonds IBI/1 General Assembly records and IBI/2 Executive Board records.

Information and documentation

The IBI Documentation Centre maintained a library of material related to informatics or information technologies. The material was organized according to thematic groupings which were assigned a classification code. The series has three subseries, including one on the history of the organization from its creation to the 1980s entitled "Histoire de l'IBI."

Secretariat of the Director-General records

The subfonds contains copies of outgoing mail as well as the IBI’s incoming and outgoing correspondence (letters and telexes). There are gaps in each of the series in the subfonds: IBI/5/1/1 Originals, IBI/5/1/2 Outgoing, and IBI/5/1/3 Telexes and telegrammes. For series IBI/5/1/1 Originals, mail is missing prior to the last trimester of 1982. After this time, the series is relatively complete and regular until the first trimester of 1988. Series IBI/5/1/2, Outgoing correspondence, is more fragmented and incomplete and does not contain any documents prior to 1983. Series 5/1/3 contains only a few files of incoming telexes and telegrams for the years 1986-1987.

Executive Council records

-IBI/2/5: Consultative Scientific Committee

Country files

The External Relations service of the Cabinet of the Director-General was responsible for relations with member and non-member states. Files are organized by country and mostly contain correspondence. Other possible documents attached to the correspondence include: reports, meeting documents, and cooperation agreements. The original order of the series was maintained - the files are roughly in alphabetical order as each country was assigned a number such as, for example: C.1 Afghanistan, C.2 Albania, C.3 Algeria, etc. In seems that in most cases files dating from before 1982 are missing. This is most apparent for countries which had many exchanges with the IBI, such as Italy, France, Spain and the United States of America, for example. Files for those countries represent the bulk of the series.
