Records Retention Workshop with Shannon Schultz
Shannon is the Public Library Administration Consultant with the Library Services Team at the Department of Public Instruction– she will present information and encourage discussion around keeping and trashing digital and paper files that could be considered public record– from emails to board minutes/agendas and a host of other documents. Learning objectives will include understanding what a record is, who is responsible for records, retention requirements and options, how to use a records retention schedule, and storage of records. All are welcome to attend. Have your questions ready!
