Abstract

PurposeIn this paper, Baron presents a a high-level summary of the US Archivist’s digital mandate for 2019, embodied in the publication “Managing Government Records”, issued on August 24, 2012 and a summary of US policy. Thurston then considers the implications of the US e-recordkeeping initiative for lower resource countries. Design/methodology/approachSee aboveFindingsThe US is embarking on a state of the art approach for managing public sector archives in digital form, with deadlines approaching for all federal agencies to manage email and other e-records. Although a similar need exists in lesser resource countries, there are enormous barriers to successful implementation of a similar approach.Research limitations/implicationsThe Archivist's 2019 digital mandate assumes that the technology sector will embrace the needs of public sector agencies in working on applicable electronic archiving solutions.Practical implicationsThe Archivist's Directive has the potential to be an enormous driver of change in the records management profession with respect to future management of increasingly digital archive collections.
