The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and the Department of Information Resources (DIR) are pleased to announce a one-day conference for state government officials involved in the management of electronic records. This e-records conference seeks to provide a practical approach for effectively managing electronic records.

Organizational Change Management
This change requires senior management vision and support. It also requires strategy, policy, communication and decentralized responsibility that ensures buy-in and accountability at all levels of the organization. It must be balanced by sufficient professional resources and reporting lines to move the organization toward compliance within an explicit timetable. Learn how this is done.
Practical Organizational Standards
International, domestic and local governmental agencies and standards bodies have provided many model standards for the management of electronic records. However, it is the responsibility of every organization to adapt and adopt a documented version of these standards for their own use. Learn what this looks like and how to use it effectively to manage deployment in your organization.
Appropriate Software Tools
Is it naive to seek a single software deployment that will address all electronic systems in an organization where electronic records are found? In this part of the program, the various tools will be reviewed for the most popular electronic environments with a discussion of their relative strengths. The discussion will include how to select viable tool alternatives and prepare and evaluate an RFP.
Practical Deployment, Implementation and Ongoing Maintenance
Share lessons learned on how to integrate electronic records management with IT goals, objectives and infrastructure; how to persuade end users to not only use, but value, the new system; and how to set in place the new roles and responsibilities that will ensure the long term success of the program.
