Toolkit Spotlight: Continuing Study of Federal Agency Recordkeeping Technologies (2008)

image of spotlightFor our Toolkit for Managing Electronic Records spotlight this month, we are going to focus on the 2008 Continuing Study of Federal Agency Recordkeeping Technologies. <.pdf link here>

This study looked at how 4 specific Federal agencies were handling electronic records and e?mail messages. Sections 4.0 and 5.0 of the report document the responses that each agency provided to our questions.  Each section contains detailed background information on what products each agency chose, what problems they encountered, and what things they learned from their experience. If you are considering a technological solution to your records management challenges, these experiences and lessons learned could be valuable.

Are there any tools you have found particular helpful or useful?  Let us know in the comments and it might just be next month’s Toolkit Spotlight.
