Critical Issues and Strategic Choices in Archives and Records Management

An Invitation to a Public Lecture University of Maryland April 26, 2001

The archives and records management professions carry out essential functions for some of our most important information resources. Their work is critical to the smooth and effective operation of government, business, education, and other institutions, to document the development of policies and services, to serve administrative and legal needs, and to ensure the retention and availability of records with enduring value. These two professional fields are in the midst of great change as the shift to e-business, e-commerce, and e-government enhance the importance of information resources. At the same time, they face substantial challenges of meeting changing member needs, preserving and managing electronic records and information, maintaining a distinct professional identity, and planning for the future.

Two of the nation’s foremost leaders in the archives and records field will address these and other issues, describe strategic choices, and share their thoughts about the future of archives and records management.

Lee Stout, President, Society of American Archivists: “Critical Issues, Strategic Choices in Archives: The View from the SAA”

Larry Eiring, President, Association of Records Managers and Administrators International: “Critical Issues, Strategic Choices in Records Management: The View from ARMA”
