Whether we think about them or not electronic records have become an intrinsic part of our lives. Managing these records presents a critical challenge for all of us, whether we are records managers, archivists or just records users. To bring greater awareness to this issue The Council of State Archivists will once again sponsor Electronic Records Day on October 10, 2016 during the annual celebration of American Archives Month. We encourage you to make use of this opportunity to reach out to your colleagues and constituents to raise awareness of the opportunities and issues relating to electronic information, what they can do, and how you can help them.
Now is the time to start planning for your Electronic Records Day event, and CoSA has a variety of helpful resources to get you started. Feel free to take any of the information provided and change or adapt it so it is relevant to your organization or group.
