The Latest Information about Electronic Records Preservation and Management.
Keynote speaker: Kenneth Thibodeau, Director of the ERA, NARA
ERA (Electronic Records Archives) is NARA’s strategic initiative to preserve and provide long-term access to uniquely valuable electronic records of the U.S. government, and to transition government-wide management of the lifecycle of all records into the realm of e-government. Dr. Thibodeau will discuss challenges, lessons learned, opportunities and next steps for the ERA Program. He will also discuss the nature and role of records and records management in relation to the contemporary cyber-landscape, and how the principles of records management inform the retention of electronic records and what changes in perspective and method are needed given the digital domain.
When: Tuesday, August 25, 2009, 9:00 a.m.— noon Where: Michigan Library and Historical Center, Forum (1st floor) 702 W. Kalamazoo, Lansing, Michigan
