A week from now, RACO 2009 will be underway. We’ve already highlighted the keynote speaker Beth Noveck. But what can you expect from the rest of our program? Let’s take a more detailed look at the morning sessions.
First on the schedule is the welcome from fellow blogger Laurence Brewer. Laurence will open RACO 2009 and introduce our first speaker, Robin Riat from NARA’s Central Plains Region in Kansas City. Robin’s session is entitled What is Social Media? An Overview of Existing Tools and Technologies. This session will provide background information about the various tools and technologies that are loosely characterized as “web 2.0” and demonstrate how these tools are used. It is great way to introduce the theme of RACO 2009, Collaborating Across Boundaries: Goverment Records and Social Media.
Next on the program is the keynote address from Beth Noveck. After the keynote, I will take the stage along with my colleagues Jason Baron from NARA’s Office of General Counsel and Susan Sullivan from our Office of Modern Records Programs . This session is Records Management Implications of Implementing Social Media Tools. We will be discussing the records management challenges that agencies face when dealing with social media. We will highlight NARA’s exiting guidance as well as the Toolkit for Managing Electronic Records and talk about how these can be used to address those challenges.
Please feel free to leave any comments and questions that you may have below. We’ll pass them along to the speakers.
