Celebrate Electronic Records Day – October 10, 2015

October 5, 2015

Electronic Records Day, sponsored by the Council of State Archivists (CoSA), highlights the importance of appropriate management of electronic records.

Here are the facts:

  • Electronic files are more fragile than paper records
  • Digital storage media have limited life spans
  • Hardware and software changes may keep you from accessing files

This being the case, the long-term survival of electronic records requires attention and planning.

Experts recommend:

  • Checking your digital files at least once a year to make sure you can read them
  • Copying and migrating your electronic files to a newer media every 3 to 5 years
  • Converting files created with obsolete software to newer formats

The takeaway message here is that electronic files can become unreadable surprisingly quickly. As a result, proactive management will be required to avoid catastrophic loss.

To learn more about preserving digital records or the City of Hope Archives contact Susan Yates, Archives Program Manager, at or Jennifer Miller, Digitization Archivist, at
