Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to document a case study of recent use of the International Records Management Trust's Records Management Assessment System (RMCAS) software tool.

Design/methodology/approach

The author used RMCAS as the primary data collection tool in an assessment of records management across the London Museums Hub.

Findings

The application of RMCAS in a museum context underlined its flexibility for use within the public sector outside of central government ministries. While RMCAS continues to serve as an excellent data collection tool that can deliver high‐level analyses, its use outside central government highlights the potential benefits of some re‐design in its next generation.

Originality/value

This paper can serve as a guide to others considering the use of RMCAS outside its original context.
