Good record keeping in an organization is essential for a number of reasons. These include legal and financial compliance, regulation and inspection, quality systems documentation, organizational effectiveness and efficiency in the use of resources. Furthermore, records management can benefit society through its assistance in areas such as civil rights, transparency of government and accountability. Unfortunately, it is often not a viable option, nor an understood one, for most library and information organizations to employ records management professionals alongside LIS professionals.
