It’s not easy to maintain the government’s filing cabinet. Every year, state government and its local counterparts create more and more records and information that must be managed properly. Changing technologies, lack of space, and disasters such as fires and floods can pose serious threats to public records.
Government officials ask many of the same questions we ask about our own personal records. How do we decide what to keep, and how long to keep it? What makes a record historically valuable? How do we care for and protect the records. The records management staff of the Office of the Public Records Administrator and the archivists in the State Archives assist state and municipalities in answering these questions. They also ensure that records with long term value are accessible to the public and preserved for future generations. Join us for the second installment of The State’s Filing Cabinet series and learn about the present and future challenges of managing and safeguarding public records.
