Records management is an organizational function devoted to the management of information in an organization throughout its life cycle, from the time of creation or inscription to its eventual disposition.
In this webinar, I will discuss the term “record,” its myriad interpretations, the importance of context, authenticity, reliability and preservation. I will highlight current challenges and opportunities including the issue of preserving links between data and records, protecting personally identifiable information, as well as concepts of digital fragility.
