Without reliable electronic records, colleges and universities will be unable to manage and defend themselves ‐ they will lose their memories and be at significant risk. The authors explain the problems associated with the continuing reliability of electronic systems, and define the difference between an “information system” and a “record‐keeping system”. Collaborative partnerships among information technology staff, archivists, records managers, auditors, lawyers, and others at each campus, and also among professional organizations, are proposed to address these needs.
