Abstract

At the heart of this project is a reconceptualization of the principles of records management and archiving in the face of the new complexities posed by electronic records. A central hypothesis is that organizations will wish to maintain access to the records they create where a continued administrative need whether this is legal, evidential, or historical, for these records can be demonstrated. Ideally the records will not be documented by record managers or archivists, but at creation stage they will be encapsulated by metadata. This metadata will be sufficient to support the reconstruction of the decision-making process or provide audit trails throughout the records lifecycle. The project is developing several of the fundamental building blocks necessary for this reconceptualization.
