NASCIO Raises Awareness for Electronic Records Day

LEXINGTON, Ky., Friday, October 10 — Today, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) celebrates Electronic Records Day, raising awareness among government agencies, organizations, and the public about the critical role electronic records play in society today.

For the third year, the Council of State Archivists (CoSA), as part of its State Electronic Records Initiative, continues to raise awareness around E-Records Day. With the increasing reliance on IT, the challenge to manage, preserve, and provide access to digital records and information continues to grow. CoSA vigilantly works to share information with states on managing their digital resources, including enlisting help to preserve electronic records.

“E-records safeguard the rights of the public by providing greater accessibility,” said Doug Robinson, NASCIO executive director. “Users must recognize the importance of managing electronic records and put forth effort to correctly preserve them.”

Join NASCIO and CoSA in raising community awareness of digital records, and of the need to stay ahead and preserve them. See CoSA’s Electronic Records Day webpage for more information:
