The records continuum theory and its more familiar representation in model form, is offered as an alternative to the linear representation of recordkeeping in the lifecycle model. Many find its expression dense and unapproachable, but it represents a holistic approach to recordkeeping independent of era, format and age of records. It encompasses both records management and archival practice thus providing a means of unifying the field of recordkeeping. This presentation uses approachable case study based examples to orient participants to the records continuum illustrating its utility as a thinking tool and a conceptual basis for approaching recordkeeping in the twenty-first century.
