OhioERC Guidelines: Best Practices for Email Management and Digital Imaging (2010)

The Ohio Electronic Records Committee (OhioERC), in cooperation with the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB), and with funding by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) offered a series of seminars based on the OhioERC’s Guidelines for Managing Electronic Mail and Digital Document Imaging Guidelines. Each 3-hour seminar covered both topics, along with contextualizing them in a records management program, and concluded with a panel discussion consisting of state and local government experts who have implemented email management and imaging systems within their offices. The seminars, hosted in Columbus, Dayton, and Elyria, were attend by more than 300 representatives of state, county, and municipal government and private sector organizations.

The OhioERC received additional support from the local chapters (Columbus Dayton, Cincinnati, and Cleveland) of ARMA International, the records and information management professional association.

Knowledge Stream, a self-enhancing learning community from WGTE Public Media, recorded our afternoon session in Columbus, and has made it available streaming on the Web. WGTE Filmed our presenters and spliced the Powerpoint® presentations into the video. The seminar can be viewed at:
