We’re all in DRAG! November 19, 2010

No man (or woman) is an island and the Future Proof team is certainly no exception. If we are going to develop tools and guidance that will help NSW government to build better digital recordkeeping systems and strategies, we need to make sure that we understand the needs of the sector. To that end we formed ‘DRAG’ in January 2007. No, there are no stilettos or false eyelashes (well only occasionally). DRAG – or the Digital Records Advisory Group – has a serious purpose.

'DRAG' meeting November 18 2010

The role of DRAG is to:

  • advise us on real world examples of digital records issues and challenges;
  • provide us with feedback on products developed as part of the digital records and archives strategy; and
  • test digital records and archives solutions.

As this busy year draws to a close we’d like to extend a big thank you to our fabulous DRAG members for all their time and expertise this year.
