Tool Spotlight: Michigan Electronic Mail Retention Guidelines

image of spotlightThis month, our Toolkit for Managing Electronic Records spotlight highlights a .PDF from the State of Michigan Records Management Services that serves as a quick visual aid to determine simple email retention guidelines . It also provides users with some easily understood examples to determine the record status of email messages.

The Toolkit was developed to include any type of tool. Tools can include case studies, best practice documents, process models, policies and directives, tips and techniques, training programs, “lessons learned”, and even presentations. From the start, the Toolkit has included tools from NARA as well as those developed by records management programs anywhere – from Federal agencies, state and local governments, academic institutions, and even some from our international colleagues.

So, do you want to submit your own electronic records management tool to our Toolkit? Instructions on how to do that are here.
