The No-Nonsense Guide to Archives and Recordkeeping,
by Margaret Crockett
You can dip in and out of the book, using the index or table of contents to focus on the thing you really need to learn. You can also follow the journey of a record, from deciding whether it needs to exist and ensuring it’s created as it should be, through deciding whether and when to destroy it, identifying the archive material to be kept permanently, and how to preserve and provide access to it well into the future.
It is aimed at people who are in any way responsible for managing records and archives and want to know how to do it properly. It is also a good basic text book for students of archives and records management and can act as a manual for archives and records management operations.
This book is definitely one to have on your bookshelf as a first port of call for information and inspiration on all aspects of recordkeeping.
