With the proliferation of technologies available at our desktops for work, communication and collaboration, it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain control over the content generated. Questions arise such as: What is a public record? What do we need to keep, and what can we delete? Who is responsible for maintaining any records generated, and who is not? How can we control this information and not get overwhelmed?

This training introduces the basics of good electronic records management. It focuses on the types of records we create and use every day at our desktops or on our shared drives, from email to spreadsheets. Learning objectives include:

  • simple ways to reduce extraneous information and clarify responsibilities;
  • easy tips on organizing electronic records across platforms;
  • and best practices in naming and tagging electronic information.

Multnomah County employees may register for the sessions online or email countywide.training@multco.us for assistance.
