301 - 'Capstone Officials' and Public Records: Risk, Buy-in, and Archival Selection

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Use of records schedules as appraisal tools works well for routine records held by low-level employees in public institutions. Records created by top-level public officials, however, can be more challenging to schedule. Using NARA's recent definition of "capstone officials" as a starting concept, panelists representing public universities and state and federal governments present case studies from their own institutions dealing with policy creation for capstone officials' records, records schedules and public records laws, and archival selection.
