The amount of information created and used in offices has increased significantly in recent years. Records, which contain all of the daily information necessary to the operation of any business, need to be managed effectively and efficiently. In today's office, maintaining the integrity of the records system means that all office workers need to be aware of the importance of correct creation, storage, use, retrieval, protection, control, and disposition of records. Technology continues to change the role played by today's office worker. This course will provide the student with the knowledge, skills and abilities to face these challenges and new responsibilities in dealing with both manual and electronic files. This course and the activities to be completed are based on the text-workbook and filing simulation materials. It introduces the concepts of manual and electronic records management related to four different filing systems: alphabetic, numeric, geographic and subjective. Hands on experience will be acquired working with realistic business documents and miniaturized filing equipment and supplies. As students work through the materials they will develop skills in quickly and efficiently filing and retrieving items, in preparing cross-reference sheets and tracking requests in a manual records management environment. A set of word document files will be organized into folders and subfolders in alphabetic and subjective electronic filing systems. 2016/11/29-2017/03/03 Lecture Tuesday 10:20AM - 12:00PM, 4155 Belshaw, Room U011 (more)...
