Teaching Electronic Records Management in the Archival Curriculum
Zhang, Jane
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v57 n1 p57-68 Win 2016
Electronic records management has been incorporated into the archival curriculum in North America since the 1990s. This study reported in this paper provides a systematic analysis of the content of electronic records management (ERM) courses currently taught in archival education programs. Through the analysis of course combinations and their relationships with ERM topic groups, the study helps identify the scope of the content coverage of ERM courses in relation to other courses in the archival curriculum. The study experiments on a method of analysis to explore the relationship between course content and related course offerings. The findings of the study provide evidence-based information for archival educators to analyze and rationalize their ERM course content coverage. It also provides opportunities for program leaders to review and design their course offerings in the archival curriculum.
