    Records Management in the Round: Repurposing your Archival Expertise to Start a Program


    Instructors: Sarah R. Demb, Senior Records Manager/Archivist, Harvard University Archives and, Sarah A. Polirer, CA, CRM, Manager Corporate Research, Cigna Corporation (Connecticut.)

    Description:  As archivists, we're very familiar with one part of the "records lifecycle" – how can we leverage our knowledge to make records management happen? This workshop will help you to use your expertise and skills to fill in gaps. You will leave knowing how to analyze active records and records-keeping systems to help ensure that what should come to the archives actually arrives, and what doesn't need to be kept is disposed of appropriately by the right people, at the right time. Can you carry out risk mitigation that keeps senior management informed and supportive? Do you have a disaster plan not just for vital records, but for vital systems? Are you protecting privacy and intellectual property rights while making information available and useful? You will after this workshop!

    Registrants will be asked to submit questions/topics of particular interest in advance so that they can be addressed within the workshop. More information will be available as the workshop nears!

    Please Note: Lunch is on your own. A list of nearby places will be provided to attendees.

    Location: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 99-101 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116
