RE: Electronic archives class yesterday recently
while discussing records management recently I questioned the abundance of gubment websites, i. e., the national archives (archives.com), digitalpreservation.com, National Records Administration (NARA), etc. I was reminded of 1970 at Chevrolet Motors Division, and all the jumping through hoops we all did under the direction of John DeLorean, who was instituting OSHA for the first time. OSHA wanted this, OSHA wanted that, but the gubment enforcers didnt know what the gubment "intelligentsia" wanted enforced. SOOOOO John D would tell us just make it "good enough for the gubment, and leave it at that." Teacher ensured me upon questioning that these gubment sites were, in deed, legitimate, and not just a big joke like OSHA was when it first began 37 years ago. I'm still scared.
