Updated ERC guidelines now available

Greetings! The Ohio Electronic Records Committee would like to announce major updates to our published guidelines for Managing Email, as well our guidelines for Managing Social Media. The Managing Email guidelines were last updated in 2012 and this represents a major effort to update the language in the guidelines, simplify them, and to make them more user-focused for our records management cohorts in public agencies throughout the state. The primary focus of the update to our Social Media guidelines was to remove outdated terminology and to update the various social media definitions to increase accessibility and relevancy in the current social media environment. We will continue to review and revise our existing guidelines, as well as develop new guidelines as needed. If you have questions or comments on the updated guidelines, or recommendations for existing or emerging topics for the Ohio Electronic Records Committee to investigate, please contact us at: OhioERC@ohiohistory.org
