Records/Information Management Icons/Clipart

Posted by

Hi,I am trying to create a visual flowchart for our executives to demonstrate the types of media we have, and what needs to be done with each one. I would like to make this as visual as possible, as these decision makers are not Records Management people, and have a very limited understanding of anything records or information related.

Does anyone have a suggestion of where I can find professional clip art or icons that would help me represent the different file formats, such as audio, paper files, e-mail, file shares, databases, etc. Am willing to pay if I can find the right collection.

Thanks,

Tzofit

I currently use SmartDraw 2019 for all of my flow charting in addition to many other features and included pre-built templates it offers.  This is a very easy, user friendly software that comes with many thousands of clip art and symbols.  I believe you would find all the visual representations you are looking for already within this one software package.  They offer a free trial as well.  Check them out at www.smartdraw.com.

Those icons are great. Thank you for the resource link!
i used the icons in Visio to create a graphic that infers different information types being captured into retention governance related to IT lifecycle activities. A gentleman from GSA though it clearly illustrated on of our large challenges.
If I can dig it out, I’ll sharejana

Hi Tzofit, aside from the standard Visio and what others have mentioned, I have tried the free online flowcharting tool from DrawIO.  There are quite a few clipart icons and IMO are very representative and intuitive.  Like almost every tool, there is some learning curve but all-in-all fairly easy to use.  The software has grown on me.  Plus you can export into various formats including a VSDX file for use in Visio…

You can try it out at  https://www.draw.io/.

Best of luck!
