Records Management at the University of Florida
Records management is the systematic and administrative control of records through out their life cycle to ensure efficiency and economy in their creation, use, handling, control, maintenance, and disposition. The University Records Manager is responsible for developing University-wide records management policies and services, maintaining records retention schedules, and for assisting with the collection and preservation of selected University records and associated materials of the University.
Florida’s Bureau of Archives and Records Management recently released updated guidelines on managing public paper and electronic records. Please pay particular interest to the electronic records section that begins on page 27.
