What are the Learning Objectives?
•  Learn the difference between a record, official record and transitory record
•  Learn about the benefits of utilizing a uniform File Classification System
•  Learn about Records Retention & Disposition Schedules and how to apply them to your work records, both paper and electronic
•  Learn about your responsibilities for records management  
•  Learn about why records are important
•  Learn about resources to help you get started (PARO, Departmental RIM Coordinators)
What are the applications in the workplace?
It is important that all employees understand that they have an obligation to manage information properly on a daily basis so that they can: 
• Comply with the Archives & Records Act and other Federal /Provincial Legislation
• Destroy records legally by applying approved Records Retention & Disposition Schedules
• Reduce storage by eliminating non-records or moving inactive records to alternate storage sites
• Organize records for easy access and improved efficiency
• Safeguard vital and historical information
Why do you need to learn about RIM?
There are many reasons to practice good records management but our goal is to make your life easier by helping you manage your records throughout their life cycle (creation, active use, semi-active use, and final disposition). Records management can help you to decide what to keep, what to throw away, and how to organize your records so that you can find information more easily, saving both time and space.
