History of Records Preservation Paper Published Print E-mail
Written by Property Records Industry Association   
Saturday, 23 December 2017

Raleigh, N.C. – The Property Records Industry Association (PRIA) has approved and published a paper on the History and Evolution of Land Records Preservation. This paper is the first deliverable of a more extensive project on the preservation of electronic records, a work project approved by the Board of Directors in April 2017.

This paper addresses the need to more thoroughly understand the concept of preserving land records and the importance of understanding the history of the media used primarily paper, Photostats, microfilm and electronic images.

Mark Ladd, vice president of Regulatory and Industry Affairs at Simplifile, and president of PRIA, praised the effort of the work project team that produced this paper saying, “Segmenting long-term projects into periodic deliverables provides readers with much-needed information in shorter papers which can be easier to process.”

Brent Holladay, chief deputy, Information Resources, Lake County, Fla., and government sector co-chair of the project states, “It seems that we often find ourselves caught up in the whirlwind of transition to a technology-centered society. It’s important to periodically take a step back and put where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going into perspective.”

Jim Harper, Kofile, the business sector co-chair for the project, concurs stating, “Understanding the history of document recording is necessary to fully appreciate the value of these documents to our citizens and economy. As our industry transitions from an analog to digital environment, we are in danger of losing this history. This document memorializes the evolution management practices that have successfully preserved these important records from the time of our country's birth to today.”
