For Bernadette:
IF you destroy your hardcopies of records and rely on
electronic storage only, be absolutely certain it is
understood by senior management that migration over the
retention period, while legally acceptable, may not be cost
effective - it may not even be possible!
For only a few more dollars, you could microfilm the
documents, scan the microfilm, and have an LE500 record for
the archives. Then, as your electronic sytem is updated in
the ensuing years, if migration is not possible, you can
always rescan the microfilm.
The best of both worlds - without the worry that migration
may not work as planned.

Respectfully
