During a couple of very long arguments recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that most people in records don’t want to be responsible for the quality of the records they manage.
Where does this leave us?
Doing a really good job of managing garbage.
Raising the maturity of how well we manage garbage.
Running projects to improve how we manage garbage.
Managing the lifecycle of garbage.
While simultaneously convincing ourselves that managing garbage leads to high quality historical archives.
And that people will want to work in a profession that does that.
And that people will pay for it.
And that it will be valued.
