Informatics is the discipline that deals with the question in which ways information is represented, how information is processed by people, organisations and systems and how information is exchanged. Recordkeeping is primarily concerned with the question of which information is required for accountability and how systems, activities and processes should be organised and managed to protect and operationalise this information. In this course, we study informatics from the perspective of recordkeeping, the discipline that deals with how a person, organisation or society can access information for accountability and evidence.
