Newsletter Articles

As King County employees, we all have a duty and obligation to manage our records. Managing records periodically is always good for business because it helps us to respond to public records requests, reduce financial liability, and helps each of us do our jobs more efficiently. Spending time on managing electronic records now is also beneficial as it will help to prepare for KCIT's project to migrate the content of all shared network drives.

Although records management should be a part of every employee's daily work, it is also a great activity to do while teleworking. Most records management tasks can be accomplished away from the office with access to the internet and the county's network (ANYConnect or VPN).

Our team has a created a one-page guide to empower you to manage your records properly from home.

 In this Issue

We want this newsletter to be a useful resource for you.  We would greatly appreciate any feedback you can offer about the kinds of information, tips, and stories that you would like us to include.  We are also always looking for contributions, so please let us know if you or your agency have any records management related successes, common struggles you face that we could assist with, or other records management related stories that you would like to share.

In this issue we introduce our two new County Records Analysts, provide guidance on packing boxes, discuss feedback we’ve received about the launch of our new electronic records management system, Content Manager, take a peek into our records management inbox inquiries, and hear from our County Archivist about processing backlogs.
