Are you concerned about all of the things you are using to create and receive records while you are working from home? Do you know what you need to manage and how?

The UC Records Management Committee is celebrating Electronic Records Day by hosting the event “Electronic Records Management – Now, More Than Ever!”

The hour-long event will take place Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. Panelists will include experts in archives, records management, privacy and information security. There will be tools to help people with management of their electronic records. After the presentations, speakers will address questions from the audience.

The experts will focus on their areas of expertise in electronic records management. Each area will provide a 10-minute presentation.

You are making history today!

Beyond newsletters, minutes and reports, it's recorded in your email, texts, webpages, chats, and much more. The University Archives strives to collect and preserve this information for tomorrow's researchers and historians. Marlayna Christensen will share tips and strategies for managing and preparing your records for the archives.
