Archives plans to educate agencies to keep better records

By Barcham - 27 March 2013 0

The National Archives of Australia have launched a new e-training module to instruct agencies how to correctly manage and store digital records of emails, text messages, Facebook pages, spreadsheets, digital maps and photographs.

The move follows warnings by Archives’ director-general David Fricker about the urgent need to preserve digital records created by government agencies in September 2012 that book-ended a deadline of late 2015 for agencies to stop sending paper records.

Mr Fricker’s big concern is that digital archives could potentially become inaccessible in the future if the technology that is used to store them is not properly upgraded.
