Management of government Records

A State Archivist's perspective.

Records management for state and municipal records take on another level of importance when they create public history.  Come hear about the Statewide Records Retention Schedule and changes it has undergone since its first publication in 2003.  You'll also learm about the Municipal Records Retention Schedule, which the State Archivist has become involved with since the retirement of the municipal records analyst this past August. There will be a discussion on public records and an overall discussion on records management as done by the Massachusetts State Archivist.
