New York State Archives: data storage advisory and workshop

Earlier this year, a couple of my colleagues put together a brief records advisory highlighting the issues that arise when the day-to-day custody and control of electronic data is outsourced to a third party. Although this advisory is intended for state and local government in New York State, it should be of interest to anyone who is contemplating storing digital resources in a cloud computing environment, a data vault, fee-for-service digital repository, or other environment not under his or her direct control.

If you're interested in learning more about data storage and its relationship to electronic records management and can get to New York's Capital Region on the afternoon of December 15, the New York State Archives is offering a new, non-technical Electronic Data Storage workshop. The workshop is free and open to anyone interested in the subject; however, space is limited and registration is required.
