Records Management for Public and Private Organizations:
Assessing RM Policies and Practices in Your Institution
Archivists, librarians, curators, and others employed in institutions of information and culture are among the most prolific users of paper,electronic, and hybrid records. The daily functions and administration of any organization depends on the steady flow and accessibility of records that are created as result of regular business operations and transactions. Periodic assessments of records and information policies and practices are necessary to help eliminate inefficiencies and meet larger organizational objectives.
This workshop offers an introduction to the basic concepts of records management for individuals working in libraries, archives repositories,museums, and other similar organizations. It also provides a comprehensive review of records management resources, methods, and best practices that might be applied at the organizational and office level.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
* Assess the deficiencies and strengths of their institution's records management program
* Identify tools and resources that are available online in open access formats
* Provide informed recommendations on how to implement or improve records management policies and practices
