October 10, 2014
In celebration of Electronic Records Day, Hawaii State Archives will be sharing the progress being made towards a Hawaii State Digital Archives which will preserve and manage Hawaii’s historical digital resources.

We will be providing a Digital Archives Project status update and go over how state government agencies will be sending records to the Digital Archives to include:

  • How the development of Hawaii’s first Digital Archives is progressing and a sneak preview of the inner workings of the archival system
  • An overview of the transfer process and demo of the Kukini, the new custom built transfer tool
  • Discussion and demo of the quality assurance and metadata extraction processes
  • What state government agencies can do to help us and how they can start prepping records for transfer to the Digital Archives

What is Electronic Records Day? Now in its third year, Electronic Records Day is an opportunity to share information about what Hawaii State Archives is doing to manage our state’s digital resources and to enlist your help in preserving electronic records. This day is designed to raise awareness among state government agencies, the general public, related professional organizations, and other stakeholders about the crucial role electronic records play in our lives.

To kick off the celebration, Governor Abercrombie and Lt. Governor Shan Tsutsui signed a proclamation establishing 10/10/2014 Electronic Records Day in Hawaii.
