Mark your calendars for the next Records Management Section Google Hangout!
On Monday, December 4 at noon Eastern, the Records Management Section will be hosting a hangout with Jackie Esposito from Penn State University. She will be talking about the report on her Institutional Placement Survey — Records Management and Archival Services.
Institutional archives and records management programs provide such a wide variety of services that institutions often “struggle to fit” them within administrative offices.
From July to December 2016, Jackie conducted a study on where records management and archival services are located within universities. She developed an online survey and visited all fifteen Big Ten Academic Alliance universities for on-site interviews with a variety of stakeholders. They discussed the needs, issues, successes, and failures for different models of placement.
Review the report and be sure to tune in live to ask questions or watch later at your convenience. You can view the Hangout here.
We will be accepting questions for our speaker from you. If you have a question or topic for discussion please leave it as a comment here or use the #saarms hashtag on Twitter. We will also monitor the comments on the YouTube live streaming page.
