NARA Strategic Plan Released

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) just released its 2014-18 Strategic Plan and it is ambitious!

Students in my graduate class on Records Management expressed interest but also serious doubts that the agency’s ability to come up with the resources to make good on its promise to “Make access happen” for all its born-digital and many of its 12 billion paper records.

I personally plan to keep a close eye on the fourth goal – “Build our future through our people” – because I understand how critical human passion, commitment, and engagement are to the art & science of effective records and archives management.
