20 years ago today, part 7: The rise of electronic recordkeeping standards

This post is a continuation of a series of reminiscences and predictions on all things
information management, to celebrate 20 years of Metataxis.

Records management was starting to come into the 21st century. It had been in those basements for millennia, so it’s modern area was going to take some time to get here! InterPARES and the European Commission’s  “Moreq” (Model Requirements for Electronic Records and Document Management) significantly helped it along the way. This heralded the start of RM in the modern age. Fast forward twenty years, and we now have (kind-of) sophisticated RM systems, but they still have a way to go to be easily usable.
