Future-proofing Government information

Media release: Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Information – the currency of the 21st century – must be future-proofed to ensure it is available for reuse now and for coming generations, says the National Archives of Australia.

To help all public servants manage and protect Australian Government information, the National Archives is launching two new e-learning modules tomorrow (Friday 21 November).

The new e-learning modules:

  • Keep it or delete it: making good choices about information, and
  • Legal requirements: managing digital information and records

are designed to increase awareness of digital information and records management in government. They aim to reduce the risk of information being lost, or destroyed illegally, or mismanaged in any way.

Interested media are invited to attend the launch:

EVENT: Launch by Auditor-General Ian McPhee PSM
DATE:  Friday 21 November
TIME: 11am
PLACE: 50 MC Theatre, Marcus Clarke Street, Canberra.
