Understanding Data and Information Systems for Recordkeeping strives to provide a bridge between the theoretical discussions about recordkeeping requirements and specifications that have taken place in our field and the general technical facts available elsewhere. The book reflects the reality that in most cases, you will not be designing a new structure from scratch. Most projects will involve critiquing what currently exists and building future strategies around and through these information systems.
