Be Sure to Celebrate Electronic Records Day (October 10, 2017)


Be Sure to Celebrate Electronic Records Day (October 10, 2017)

From The Council of State Archivists …

The Council of State Archivists (CoSA) will once again sponsor Electronic Records Day on October 10, 2017 during the annual celebration of American Archives Month Electronic Records Day highlights the importance of electronic records and digital preservation issues in government and in our lives as a whole.  We invite you and your organization to join with CoSA to use this opportunity to reach out to colleagues and constituents to share information on the critical challenges of and solutions to managing electronic government records and information.  

…  See CoSA’s Electronic Records Day page, and check back often for updates, including upcoming additions on disaster preparedness for electronic records, managing personal digital information, managing electronic communications in government, and the difference in IT backups and digital preservation processes.

Also, please plan on joining us on social media on October 10 using the hashtag #ErecsDay.

Some resources available are:
·        10 Reasons for E-Records
·        Electronic Records Emergency Planning and Response
·        Why You Need More Thanks Backups to Preserve Records
·        Person E-Records Tips

At a basic level, in our modern lives, every day is a day to have awareness about electronic records and their preservation. Most of us are creating electronic records on a daily basis whether personally, professionally, or related to our genealogy research.





How will you celebrate Electronic Records Day?
