For records creators tasked with managing and transferring their organization's records, tackling overflowing file cabinets and hard drives, navigating records policies, and following transfer procedures can be an overwhelming challenge. For archivists, encouraging effort and engagement on the part of records creators can result in better-described accessions requiring less appraisal. The speakers share their experiences developing records management training programs and supporting records creators at two large public universities, a small liberal arts college, and in state government.
