Bruce et al,

I agree that this document contains a great deal of outdated information. I
don't agree that it is written mainly from a records management point of
view. I believe it is written primarily from a library point of view. The
library profession continues to "(re)discover" principles and practices
from the archival profession and give them new names. If they didn't invent
it, it doesn't exist.  Thus appraisal becomes selection.

My two cents,

> My quick observations are not to endorse or disparage this report.

> Since it is records management oriented it stresses non-traditional record
