Records Information Management Specialist

Records Information is the process of managing an organization's documentation and information from time of creation through storage and disposal. Organizations rely on safe, secure, and efficient record keeping practices. Records management specialists are foundational to ensuring institutional compliance, protecting activity logs and communication records, and generally ensure that risk is limited through transparent and efficient document practices.

In addition to traditional / paper storage, students use computers and current software for information storage and retrieval.MMCC's program emphasizes the Association of Records Managers and Administrators (ARMA) standards for alphabetic indexing and cross-referencing methods, as well as the numeric, geographic, chronological, and subject methods.
