Records - in the form of documents, photographs, video and other media - are vital artifacts that capture the history of government action and decision-making. Every government employee is required to preserve government records; however, with the thousands of documents generated each day across hundreds of agencies, many government employees don't know what to keep and for how long. This training defines what records are, discusses the benefits of effective record management and provides an overview of tools that can support the implementation of effective records management in an agency.
