Check out Chris Prom’s post on his Practical E-Records blog where he discusses a presentation given by Steve Bailey from JISC Infonet at the DPC Preserving Email Seminar in London, on July 29th. Bailey argued that the records management approach to email has shown little regard for users and the survival of a useful email record unlikely and he proposed an alternate way forward using new technologies such as “email archiving” software alongside a lightweight policy structure based on user needs and requirements. Prom summarizes Bailey’s thoughts and applies them to his email preservation guidance report.

The Information and Records Management Society created a RM Toolkit for Schools back in 2008. They are planning on updating the toolkit soon. While it focuses on assisting public sector schools in complying with the Freedom of Information Act, it has helpful sections that deal with managing e-records, such as email management and creating information management systems.
