The records outline general government policy concerning use of technology, emergency procedures, awards, training needs, retrieval of records in times of litigation, and the online publication of government employees’ email addresses. Very few of the memoranda were sent specifically to the Library Services branch and were usually addressed to all directors within the Ministry.
