We are requesting comments on the draft of an upcoming NARA Bulletin on managing content on shared drives. NARA bulletins are designed to provide fundamental guidance to Federal agencies who must then determine the most appropriate ways to incorporate the guidance into their work.
NARA recognizes agencies have long used shared drives to store content. Agencies have had varying degrees of success in managing the Federal records on shared drives. This draft Bulletin will outline the records management implications and challenges, agency responsibilities, and strategies for organizing and managing content stored on shared drives. This Bulletin was drafted with the assistance of subject matter experts within NARA and interviews at selected agencies that have experience managing content on shared drives.
Please make your comments about the draft Bulletin and any suggestions here by October 27, 2011. We will review all the comments we receive. We plan to publish the Bulletin by the end of November. You can download the draft of the bulletin (as .pdf ) from this link.
Thank you for your input!
