This volume contains common-sense guidelines for the space management and control of office records systems. Tweedy proposes that an in-depth study of the file system, as well as the entire process of business records creation and control, be undertaken prior to or simultaneous with comprehensive office space planning and allocation. This analysis will effectively eliminate unsatisfactory systems control. Tweedy shows how to evaluate a firm’s entire records system, from creation to filing, storing, retrieval, and the ultimate destruction. He also suggests immediate ways to reduce or eliminate many unsatisfactory processes. The author provides many surprisingly simple solutions to the space-related problems of records management. What’s more, they do not necessarily entail the purchase of new space-saving equipment, although a discussion of such equipment is included. The volume is complete with illustrations, checklists, diagrams, and alternative routes to more perfect file space utilization.
