Does it take ages to find a file in your shared drive? Are you running out of room in your email box? Save yourself and your office time and money by learning to manage your electronic records. In this workshop, we’ll help you manage your email and electronic records efficiently and effectively by giving you guidelines for:

  • Naming and organizing your files for fast and easy access
  • Developing a file plan for your office shared drive
  • Determining which emails you should keep, and how to store them
  • Learning how to keep your digital records in compliance with Harvard’s records management policies

Workshops are about an hour long. Attendance is free and open to all members of the HMS/HSDM community. Familiarity with the General Records Schedule (GRS) is helpful but not required. Registration is encouraged to insure sufficient space for all participants. To register, email us at
