Our next Chapter meeting is scheduled for November 17, 2016
Mr. Craig is a widely acclaimed speaker on topics that range from technical issues to work process improvements. Mr. Craig has a continued interest in measurable informational improvements in the work place. He stresses that information exchanges are culturally based, and therefore records management improvements present unique challenges NOT encountered in any other areas of business in the western world.
Mr. Craig employs a Classic Records Management approach to information management. The process includes the verifiable work processes, and identification of the costs associated with each solution, based on the records retention schedule; refer to http://mike2.openmethodology.org/ .

Fixity, the Problem and the Solution
The migration from microfilm to electronic media for the storage of archival material is both a blessing, and a challenge. The Library of Congress has already defined the scope of the challenge and developed guidelines and recommendations for those institutions responsible for the long term storage of ‘permanent’ records.
Michael Brooks and Jim Craig shall address, the root concerns defined by LC and one of the three solutions, the easiest and least expensive, LC has defined in their documentation about Fixity.
This is a technical issue, couched in non-technical terms, which will allow you to open a timely discussion with your IT team.
Date: October 13, 2016
Time: 11:30AM - 1:00PM
Where: Orange County Comptroller's Board Room / 109 E. Church Street / 4th Floor
