ARM Seminar: Teams, OneDrive, SharePoint, Oh My!  Records Management and Microsoft 365

The Commonwealth and local governments are implementing many features of M365.  Agencies are moving away from network file shares to use SharePoint. Teams promises increased functionality, with chat, collaboration tools, and a phone system. One Drive allows sharing of work documents with others. What are the records management implications?  Where should records be stored? How should they be maintained for retention and disposition? Our speakers will lay out some of the challenges and concerns with managing records in this new environment.

  • Meaghan Fukunaga, Deputy Director, Records Management, Indiana Archives and Records Administration

Pennsylvania State Archives Poster Collections Available Online

The Pennsylvania State Archives, in collaboration with the State Library of Pennsylvania, digitized World War I posters from Manuscript Group 200 Poster Collection (MG 200) and Manuscript Group 272 Pennsylvania Military Museum Collections (MG 272). The World War I poster collection is available online and consists of 462 illustrated posters. The posters helped to fan the fires of patriotism throughout the United States during the Great War, and to arouse the American fighting spirit and the will to sacrifice on the home front. An additional 386 digital images from our general poster collection have also been created which include items from 1854 to the present.
