University records are important assets of Dalhousie University and are defined as information, regardless of format or medium, which is created, received, and maintained by the university and which provides evidence of its transactions or activities.
University records are usually managed within a records management framework that supports the information governance throughout a record’s life cycle from its creation or receipt, maintenance and use, and ultimate disposition. The University Records Management Policy was approved by Dalhousie President Dr. Richard Florizone on November 29, 2016.
A University-wide Records Management (RM) program is currently being developed under the leadership of the Vice Provost Planning, Susan Spence Wach; Associate Vice-President Academic, Fiona Black; and University Librarian, Donna Bourne-Tyson.
Stay tuned for more RM information and RM services.
