This research was performed to study the effects of automation on Air Force records management productivity prior to widespread implementation of Document Librarian. Document Librarian is a software tool developed for Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command HQ AFMC to manage records in accordance with Air Force, Federal, and National Archives and Records Administration NARA regulations, and is currently undergoing developmental testing. One organization was used as a case study to determine the effects of Document Librarian on the organizations records management productivity. A records management process model was constructed and used to define the relevant tasks and outputs of their records management process. Administrative Productivity Indicators APIs, a productivity measuring technique, was then used to determine a measure of productivity for the tasks defined by the model. The results showed approximately a 30 to 31 increase in the Records Technicians productivity when records were managed with Document Librarian.
