Our Speaker and Topic for the Evening

Dr. Lori Richards
Speaker Bio

Dr. Lori Richards is an Assistant Professor at Drexel University’s College of Computing and Informatics. Her research focuses on two key areas in digital curation: (1) organizational factors that influence digital curation success, primarily in governmental and business organizations, and (2) the educational requirements necessary to ensure that successful digital curation occurs in these organizations.

Presentation Summary

Records managers must engage in significant communication with colleagues from other occupations within their organizations. This is not always easy, because of different work-related goals and priorities and different “languages” used within the work environment. This is especially true when records managers work together with information technology workers, who often not only appear to use a different manner of speaking but also often are treated as if they are of higher status within the organization.  

During this presentation Dr. Richards;

Will speak about a case study she performed in which she looked at the ways in which a cloud computing implementation in a state government affected the willingness and ability of records managers to engage in exemplary management of the organization’s records.

She will discuss the incentives that led to less and lower quality records management work and will try to highlight techniques that might ameliorate what appears to be a natural tendency in this situation to reduce records management activities. This will rely upon building a bridge that allows better communication to occur between information technology personnel and records manager
