Records and Information Management Basics

Does it stay or does it go? Ever wonder how long you need to keep grant information, a job applicant resume or the files left behind by your predecessor?  Do you often go “Outlookin’” for a file? Come to Records and Information Management Basics to find out and learn more.

This class provides an introduction to Records and Information Management at UCSF.  It covers what is and is not a record.  Why managing the lifecycle of records and information is important and how long to keep records and information.  An overview of methods for storing and, when the time comes, disposing of records and information will be covered.
