  • Robin, there are several resources here that I wasn't aware of. Depending on personal interest, this is a great tool for records professionals to keep up to date on what is happening in RIM within the community of records management as well as out in the world. This presentation could also be used as a marketing resource -- showing the unenlightened or the recent convert all these references; a staff development tool (give them assignments); as a tool to use to find examples and references for cost justification, ROI, etc. for budget, etc.
    Great work--are you planning to put the presentation on an update schedule?
