The use of electronic mail by university employees has become the standard for business communication, yet its use has not been accompanied by records management solutions. With the passage in December 2006 of amendments to the federal rules of civil procedure, however, all "electronically stored information" including e-mail has explicitly been identified as an important source of evidence in federal lawsuits. Thus, university employees at both public and private institutions of higher education must manage their e-mail in a legally compliant manner. The University of Wisconsin System has implemented a records management program whereby all 42,000 employees receive the training, tools, resources, and legal authority to manage their e-mail accounts. This project affords other institutions the opportunity to use components of the program and integrate them into their own efforts to provide employees with guidance on managing e-mail in a legally compliant manner. Note that this seminar will provide transferable guidance that can be used within any information system.
