Records Management is the management of information resources in a manner that makes information easily accessible, securely protected, stored and disposed of when no longer required for administrative purposes. Records management controls the creation, maintenance, use and disposal of records.


The aim of the 4-day records management course is to teach the basics of records management and explain the National Archives' role in promoting efficient records management.
