NAGARA’s 2020 Spring Online Forum: the Lifecycle of a Record followed the ubiquitous phases of a record, but with some twists! Attendees began the day with an overall look at what needs to be taken into account during future phases in the creation/receipt phase session. Next, attendees turned chaos into order during the declaration/filing phase session, and walked away with a helpful toolkit to help them create their own file plan. Session three led attendees through the maintenance and use of records, with a panel of records managers answering a list of information governance-related questions. Participants explored the important and at times esoteric storage/security phase, which focused not on physical buildings, but on security classification policies at the federal-government level. The day concluded with attendees examining what “defensible disposition” means and diving into various innovative methods for disposing of both legacy data and the ever-growing volume of electronic records.
