Federal Records Management

Technology: Open Source Records Management Tools

Description: NARA compiled a list of available open source tools that could be used for various records management functions in the Open Source Tools for Records Management Report. NARA, along with agencies, will maintain the information on the ERM Automation Working Group wiki as a resource for the Federal records management community. Members of the wiki are encouraged to describe how they have used tools, identify gaps in open source records management tools, and share additional recommendations.

Additionally, NARA will work with stakeholders to develop open source records management components, applications, or tools for specific business needs. Possible activities are 1) engage with external groups to work with open source and research communities on NARA's behalf for developing practical, affordable electronic records management tools, 2) sponsor a test bed/evaluate open source tools, 3) host an event in NARA's Innovation Hub to share information, best practices, with open source practitioners working in areas related to records management.

Status: The report is available
