A second important aspect of the Project was the provision of records management advice as requested and the publication and dissemination of its findings to assist researchers in law, the humanities and the social sciences and to raise the consciousness of the administrators and teachers of Law concerning the importance of proper records management, not only for efficiency in administration but for posterity. A major aspect was the publication of the Guide to Records of Legal Education and Law Schools (see A.RLEP 5), but a number of other papers were produced dealing with other aspects of record keeping and offering advice. The records listed below represent the efforts of the Project Co-ordinator and the Advisory Committee to achieve these aims.
