New Blog from Archivist of the United States

David S. Ferriero, the Archivist of the United States (AOTUS), has started a blog:

  • AOTUS: Collector in Chief

    We risk losing our memory as a country if we cannot meet the challenges of electronic records management. The fact is, without good records management, it is impossible for us to learn from the past and plan for the future.

    …I expect the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration to change the way we do things, the way we think about things, and the way we deliver services to the public.

    Has anyone seen the memorandum from Nancy H. Kichak, Associate Director, on “Information Request Supporting the Establishment of an Occupational Series for Information Management,” Ms. Kichak requests agency human resource directors to submit documents describing the information management work performed by their agencies. She further requests that the HR directors “seek the input of the subject matter experts and program managers, including your agency’s FOIA Officer and Privacy Act Officer.”

    Additionally, Ms. Kichak requests feedback on two questions:

    1. Is it appropriate to merge Freedom of Information Act, Privacy Act, and Records Management duties and responsibilities into one series? If not, please explain.
    2. Are there additional, related functions that should also be covered by this occupational series? If so, please provide relevant documents as listed above.

    Follow the link to see the memorandum which has not been widely distributed.
