The Records and Information Management Update or the “RIM Update” is issued quarterly to State Records Officers and Liaisons but contains information that is pertinent to the broader public records community.
Although no longer published, For the Record, a joint newsletter by VSARA and the Department of Information and Innovation (DII) provided valuable information and consistenct advice about the managing electronic information.
Columns & Presentations
The “Voice from the Vault” is the State Archivist’s column in the Secretary of State’s monthly publication, Opinions. The State Archivist and VSARA staff often speak at conferences and submit articles to professional journals. Select presentations are available online.
The State Archivist position evolved from the formal position of “Editor of State Papers” within the Secretary of State’s Office. “State Papers of Vermont” takes you to titles of the State Papers series, first authorized in 1912, which are primarily annotated texts from 18th Century documents but which also include some published finding aids. Additional publications that were not part of the State Papers series are also available online.
