Records Management

University Records Management (URM) assists in the management of official Brandeis records, regardless of format or location, to meet legal and contractual requirements, including satisfying the operational needs and efficiency of the university; guiding university employees in proper records stewardship; and supporting the documentation of university history.

Records: Any information, regardless of format or location, made or received in connection with Brandeis activity and documenting University functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and research. Examples of records include student transcripts, invoices, reports, deeds of gift, research data, and licensing agreements.
Records Management (RM): The responsible and consistent management of an institution’s records throughout their lifecycle (creation, use, preservation, destruction) using professional best practices, such as legal and regulatory compliance, and legitimate internal informational and operational needs.
