Broader Term: 
Distinguish From: 

n. ~ A copy of a record distributed to make recipients aware of the content, but not directing the recipient to take any action on the matter.

Notes: 

Information copies are often considered to be nonrecords, having only ephemeral value. Because information copies are duplicates of the record copy, some retention schedules allow them to be disposed of at any time without authorization.
