MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY RECORDS OFFICERS: NARA Bulletin 2011-02

I am pleased to notify you that NARA has issued NARA Bulletin 2011-02, Guidance on Managing Records in Web 2.0/Social Media Platforms.

This bulletin provides guidance on managing records produced when Federal agencies use web 2.0/social media platforms for Federal business. Open and transparent government increasingly relies on the use of these technologies, and as agencies adopt these tools, they must comply with all records management laws, regulations, and policies.

The bulletin has been posted to our website at http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/bulletins/2011/2011-02.html.

If you would like additional information regarding this bulletin, please contact your appraiser who can provide any additional information you might need. If you do not know who your assigned appraiser is, you will find a list of the appraisal and scheduling work group and regional contacts on the NARA website at http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/appraisal/.
