NAGARA and IIMC Release Records Management Technical Bulletin Series NAGARA and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) recently released a series of archives and records administration bulletins with support from a grant from NHPRC to the Municipal Clerks Education Foundation (MCEF), a non-profit partner of IIMC whose mission is to train municipal clerks to make them more proficient in providing the services needed in their communities. The target audience for these bulletins is local and county government officials who have had little education or experience in managing their communities' records and who have limited resources available to obtain that training. A number of these titles are revisions and updates of titles that were included in the 1995 - 2000 records management bulletin series published by NAGARA and IIMC, also with the support of a grant from NHPRC. Several new titles have been added to the series in support of changing technologies.
NAGARA and IIMC support the expansion of our series catalogue. If there is a subject you would like to see addressed in a future RM bulletin, or if you have an interest in contributing to this series as an author on a subject that you are interested in and knowledgeable about, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join other US Government Archivists and Records Administrators on LinkedIn NAGARA has created a NAGARA Group on LinkedIn for archivists and records managers working in all levels of government to exchange information and network with one another. As participation grows and becomes more active, we can create distinct forums. If you are already a LinkedIn member, search for NAGARA in Groups, and request to join. If you are not a member, consider joining -- go to www.LinkedIn.com. LinkedIn is a professional social networking site which allows you considerable control over how and to whom you disclose your personal and professional information. It allows creating and participating in professional interest groups, among other functions, which can provide forums for discussions and group news. Currently, membership in the Group is limited to: 1) employees of member organizations of NAGARA; 2) employees of other federal, state, local and tribal governments that are qualified to be members; 3) other persons (whether employed in government or not) who are active individual members of NAGARA; 4) students in relevant higher education programs; and 5) persons with a work history in government archives/RM. For persons asking to join from a non-government email address, the Group Owner will try to confirm eligibility by checking his/her LinkedIn profile.
