LEXINGTON, Ky., Monday, October 5 — In an effort to raise awareness for the crucial role and importance of electronic records, on October 10 and the days leading up, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) will observe Electronic Records Day.
“The generation of digital data and creation of digital records in government continues to increase at an astounding rate,” said Doug Robinson, NASCIO executive director. “We all must recognize the importance of managing and preserving records in this modern format which promotes greater accessibility of information for the public.”
E-Records Day was created by the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) as part of its State Electronic Records Initiative. In recognition of its fourth year, CoSA will promote electronic records awareness leading up to October 10 and will place a special focus on electronic communications in government.
Join NASCIO and CoSA in raising awareness of digital records and the importance of their preservation among government agencies, professional organizations and stakeholders, as well as the general public.
