About this unit
In today’s information age, there’s more to archive – and perhaps more to dispose of – than ever before. So how do you know what’s important to keep and how to find it later? This online unit in Recordkeeping Concepts and Practice will provide you with a framework for keeping information and controlling your records.
You will learn about the flow of information in organisational contexts and how to classify different kinds of information. This is followed by an introduction to recordkeeping systems and reports management strategies that you can implement to increase efficiency and accountability in your workplace.
Issues of security, storage and disposal are covered, as well as the information life cycle and continuum theory, so you can conceptualise the kinds of frameworks that apply to different scenarios and organisational structures. Whether you’re looking to become a librarian or apply your information management skills to corporate or government sectors, this unit will set you up with a detailed and flexible approach to recordkeeping.
