Records classification tool
A records classification tool is a hierarchical representation of terms that allow you to group similar characteristics and give the group a name or title often from a predetermined list or controlled vocabulary. Using a records classification tool allows you to arrange and group your information according to the activities of the agency.
Classification allows you to:
- link information and records relating to the same activity or purpose
- be consistent in titling
- develop a systematic framework for the creation, management and disposal of records
- enhance information access and retrieval
- share information and other resources between government agencies
