Did you know that one of the Alabama Department of Archives and History’s (ADAH) central missions is to aid state and local governments in the management of their records? ADAH staff work with state and local agencies on records and information management and on the preservation of permanent records. We also conduct free on-site visits for assistance and training.
This blog is designed to share information pertinent to the management and preservation of government records, including such topics as records retention, professional training, disaster preparedness, electronic records, and more. From the mountains of north Alabama to the Mobile Bay, our blog will relay news from our staff who travel across the Yellowhammer State to train and assist records management liaisons. We will also report the activities of the Alabama State Records Commission and the Alabama Local Government Records Commission.
Who we are and what we do is vital to preserving government records for the benefit of current and future generations of Alabamians. Check out our weekly blog posts to find out more.
