(Gilliland-Swetland 2000b) Some records are created for legal purposes such as effecting an action (known as 'dispositive records') or proving that an act of action took place (known as 'probative records'), while other records, such as working papers and correspondence may merely provide supporting documentation of actions in which an organisation or individual was involved.
