In May 1997, Archives & Museum Informatics organized a 'Working Meeting on Electronic Records'. This invitational meeting brought together 57 researchers and practitioners from North America, Australia, and Europe to explore the state of current research in detail. Workshops enabled attendees to better understand each others' views in order to identify outstanding issues and promising approaches to future research based on research that had either been completed or was underway. The ultimate goal of the Working Meeting was to develop highly specific research agenda items that can be used by research institutions and other organizations to move the field forward in its ability to effectively capture, maintain, and use electronic records.
