NASCIO Observes Electronic Records Day

LEXINGTON, Ky., Friday, October 9 — Today, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) is observing Electronic Records Day, sponsored by the Council of State Archivists (CoSA). Electronic Records Day is celebrated every year in October as an opportunity to share what states and organizations are doing to manage digital resources and preserve electronic records.

In recognition of Electronic Records Day, CoSA has promoted electronic records awareness leading up to October 9 to raise community awareness of digital records, and of the need to manage and preserve them. CoSA reminds us that electronic records need regular attention and care in order to remain accessible. Join NASCIO and CoSA in raising awareness of digital records and the importance of their preservation.

See CoSA’s Electronic Records Day resource page for more information and tips on managing e-records.
