Recently, a government agency set out to create an electronic records management (ERM) system. The agency developed a formal records and information management (RIM) program, including detailed policies and procedures for managing electronic records. Professionals who work in records management refer to their field as records and information management. Records contain information, and in this sense, those who manage records manage information. Yet many RIM professionals ignore or underemphasize critically important aspects of organizational information management affecting records. Ensuring that records-creating information content management applications integrate with an ERM system guarantees that the organization is capturing and retaining all of its records -- the risk management rationale -- as well as making them accessible for use in business processes -- the information management rationale. What the records management field most needs today is to reduce its preoccupation with risk management to make room for a renewed emphasis on information management.
