Jeannie Kellam has been with University Computing Services, Indiana University for the past twelve years in a variety of roles, including programmer, analyst, and project manager. Most recently she had the opportunity to participate with Phil Bantin and Gerry Bernbom on the IU Electronic Records Project, funded in part by NHPRC. Early efforts were spent on acquainting myself with terminology and procedures of the archivist. The majority of my time with the project has been spent with development of a methodology intended to guide an analyst in research relevant to the evaluation of information systems in the context of recordkeeping systems. This work has been based on the efforts of, and in cooperation with, Phil Bantin and Gerry Bernbom. And Jeannie is in the process of beginning a field test of the methodology with an analyst from University Computing Services. She and Helen Samuels, of MIT, and recently moderated an Issues Collaboratory, focusing on electronic records, at a task force meeting of the Coalition for Networked Information. Other opportunitiesto spread the word about electronic recordkeeping issues include participation in the IU Committee of Data Stewards, work with application development at IU, the IWIS initiative sponsored by CNI, and a possible presentation at CAUSE 97.
