Recordkeeping Systems (Definition)

A recordkeeping system is the combination of resources and tools used to capture, manage and provide access to records over time.
This is broader than the technology used to manage records, e.g. an eDRMS – a recordkeeping system can consist of technical elements such as software, which may be designed specifically for managing records or for some other business purpose, and non-technical elements including the people, technology, policy, procedures and tools involved in managing records in an agency.
