The Office of the Clerk and Recorder has initiated a number of major projects to put the agency at the forefront nationally in elections offerings, preserve valuable city records for many decades to come, make more records available to the public online, and to reorganize and modernize agency operations generally to make the city's records easier for the public to access.
Many of these projects involve the placing of as many city records online as possible. The ultimate goal of all of these projects is better customer service for the public. Click the links to see details about each project.
- Recording Software Replacement - Replacement of the current obsolete recording software will allow electronic recording of documents and will eventually place all recorded documents online.
- Records Imaging Initiative - A multi-year project aimed at creating high-quality electronic images of about 17 million documents now found on deteriorating microfilm, microfiche and paper. Completed images will be placed online with the implementation of the recording software replacement, above.
