    record keeping

    Dear friends,

    In the following sentence,

    Vincent's duties progressed from record keeping and correspondence chores in the back office to dealing, if only in a subordinate way, with clients.

    Could record keeping mean either 1. the process of maintaining records, say, sorting out files, etc. or writing down transaction records in a ledger, like book keeping? Thanks.
