Abstract

Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) have now produced and created most of their documents and records electronically. These records need to be managed efficiently and effectively according to the widely accepted standards. Well-managed records could give untold benefits to organization, hence, help organizations remain competitive. The management of electronic records ought to be guided by a policy, which serve as a roadmap in implementing the initiative. A study is conducted in order to determine whether Institutions of Higher Learning in Libya have guideline to manage electronic records. It is also to identify whether there are problems in managing electronic records, and to identify what problems are encountered. This study adopts survey as its method employing a questionnaire as the technique to collect data.
