Implementing ACCESS: Guiding the Creation, Preservation, and Use of Electronic Records

The Council of State Archivists (CoSA) received a National Leadership for Libraries grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.  The grant award is for $210,240, with grant programming slated to begin October 1, 2017.  The grant will allow CoSA to gather, develop, and share best practices and guidance materials to improve the creation, management, preservation, and use of permanent state government digital records and information. CoSA will collaborate with the National Governors Association (NGA), the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), and the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA), as well as content creators in state government and users of government data, to help improve preservation and use of permanent state government electronic records.
