> Subject: Large amount of out-of-retention digital materials
> 
> Hello,
> My name is Drew Davis, and I am the new(ish) archivist for a medical associ=
> ation and also happen to have records management duties. While I've been an=
> archivist for over a decade, I don't have much experience with records man=
> agement.
> My issue: I conducted a records management verification process last year w=
> hich required contacts on the records retention schedule to "verify" that t=
> hey were properly disposing of out-of-retention materials. We found that ap=
> parently little consideration was ever really given to disposing of digital=
> materials, and that now we have quite a bit of out-of-retention material i=
> n fileshares, Oracle, email, etc.
> This has also turned into a political issue; our purchasing/contracts depar=
> tment, one of the largest offenders of hoarding digital materials, has show=
> n interest in working to clean up their e-records. At the same time, their =
> director is questioning why they should put time/money into cleaning up the=
> ir e-records when the info could be discoverable in other places. Some olde=
> r contracts are still active, and so I don't believe that "purging all reco=
> rds before a certain date" is an option.
> My questions are:
> 
> *         Have you encountered this situation at your institution? How have=
> you handled it?
> 
> *         Do you know of any best-practices guidelines specifically for a s=
> ituation where a records management program was technically in place, but a=
> department has not been following retention guidelines (for years)?
> I've reached out to a few personal contacts who are records managers (and w=
> ho have provided wonderful guidance), but I've decided to cast a wide net f=
> or more input. I appreciate any advice this listserv can provide.
> Thank you so much!
