Electronic Records Management Guidelines

You routinely create, use, and manage information electronically in your daily work as you use computers to send e-mail, create spreadsheets, publish web pages, manage databases, and create other electronic materials. Because you work for a government agency, Minnesota and federal laws mandate that you treat that information as official government records.

You probably already have a strategy to manage your paper records. Learn how to develop a strategy to manage electronic records by using these guidelines.
