Electronic Content Management Systems

Many people believe that an electronic content management system (ECM) is merely an electronic document imaging system, but it is actually a software system that allows for the creation, indexing, management, and retrieval of documents in various formats (including image files) through a single interface.

After a brief introduction to electronic documents, the bulk of this workshop will address:

  • Types of technologies and strategies required for their management
  • How governments can determine whether or not they need an ECM
  • How to plan for, implement, and maintain an ECM
Workshop Type: Classroom Training
Intended Audience: Historical Records Repositories, Local Governments, State Agencies
