April is Records and Information Management month; betcha didn’t know that. Those of us that work in records and archives programs use this month as a way to educate people about the importance of records in our lives. Records and information have a life cycle; they are created, used and then diposed of, OR they go to the archives. Those records that go to archives have historical value for years to come; they document our communities, activities, and important events.
Records & Information Lifecycle
Collections in archives just don’t happen; it takes positive action by governments, companies and individuals to make sure important records are saved for future generatons.
So join us. Take some time this month to ensure your important family records are preserved for the future. We will be posting links to preservation resources in upcoming weeks that everyone can use, no matter the size of the collection!
