Presentation abstract

This paper addresses the growing problem of rising electronic and born-digital record use in the field of Archives and Governmental Records Management. This paper reviews the Archives and Records Management scholarly literature for precedence of using Digital Humanities Computing Methods to enhance Records Management collections and tests the viability of one method—Topic Modeling—in solving two particular Records Management problems: a) Retention Schedule Creation and b) Taxonomy Creation. Careful attention is paid to the philosophical implications of using Digital Humanities Computing Methods in archives and records management. The valuable perspective of classical and modern philosophy of technology is explored to address both the current challenge of born-digital records, and the future challenge of "smart cities" and the "internet of things" within the context of Archives and Records Management and freedom of governmental information.
