15 September 2005 - North Group Meeting
The September 2005 meeting of the RMS North Group was held at Lancashire Record Office in Preston. The meeting was a great success, and we have received excellent feedback from delegates, particularly concerning the high quality of our speakers.
The theme of the day was "Back to Basics" and was designed to give those new to records management an introduction to the basic principles, as well as reminding others of the traditional practices associated with the field. Our first talk for the day was from Penny Feltham (Stockport Borough Council), who discussed how the Records Manager can help the Archivist. The day also included a case study on the growth of a records centre from Rachel Moffat (Lancashire County Council) and included a tour of the recently expanded County Records Centre in Preston. Our sponsors for the day were Railex Systems Ltd who gave a talk entitled "back to basics", which introduced the concept of "non-intrusive records management."
