This paper discusses the importance of including information systems design as a necessary skill for records professionals and also as a stage or dimension in the models explaining the records existence – the life cycle and the continuum – in emerging technologies environments such as DLT. To analyze the inclusion of information systems design as part of archival science curricula, we analyzed the curriculum guidelines in Canada, Australia, USA and the United Kingdom. To revisit the life cycle and continuum we analyzed both models and suggested, based on the design research methodology, the inclusion of information systems design in both models as a stage or dimension needed for the existence of authoritative records. We conclude that there is a need to revisit both models and include information systems design skills in the present archival science curricula in order to avoid barriers to the creation, use, maintenance and preservation of authoritative records in emerging technologies environments such as DLT.
