The Council of State Archivists (CoSA) is celebrating Electronic Records Day today, October 10, 2013. CoSA is distributing a brief release which highlights some electronic records management challenges. It is designed to raise awareness and remind everyone of the importance of managing and preserving electronic records. Take a moment to review 10 reasons for e-records 2013. Electronic records are fragile and will not survive without management and care. Celebrate Electronic Records Day by doing something to make a difference.
