Managing Electronic Records, June 15, 2012 —
REGISTRATION STILL AVAILABLE
Location: The Bunn Library, The Lawrenceville School, Lawrenceville, NJ
Instructor: Geof Huth, New York State Archives
Local Contact: Jacqueline Haun, Archivist The Lawrenceville School
Description: Many people like to treat electronic records as they do the weather: by, as Mark Twain said, complaining about it but doing nothing about it. We are now decades from the point at which that was an excusable way for archivists to address the issue of electronic records. This workshop will provide a simple introduction to the world of managing electronic records in archives by reviewing every aspect of archival workflow as it relates to electronic records. Particular focus will be placed on understanding the choices for long-term electronic file formats as well as the basics of preservation.
