Please join the IRMS London group for an informative and interactive session led by David Bowen on "Preserving E-mails – Which? Why? How long?".
The session is designed to facilitate discussion, focussing on which e-mails need to be preserved and why; looking at standard records management retention questions and at historical archival reasons. We will ask how long the e-mails need to be preserved, and see what differences this makes to the preservation methods selected. Finally we will look at methods for selecting, capturing and preserving e-mails, ranging from manual methods (which require personal responsibility) to fully automated systems (which can require a significant budget).
Our usual format for the evening will include networking, sandwiches, tea and coffee from 5.30pm-6.30pm followed by David's session at 6.30pm-8pm with time for questions.
The meeting will be held at the OFWAT offices in meeting room 4 on 21 Bloomsbury Street, London. The closest tube stations are Tottenham Court Road, Goodge Street, and Holborn.
