Managing university records

Records created by Stanford affiliates are one of the University's most valuable assets. Among other things, records support administrative decision-making and operations, demonstrate compliance, and document Stanford's institutional history. Just like other University assets, records need to be properly managed. These web pages are designed to provide basic records management guidelines to help you:

  • Effectively organize and maintain records
  • Improve efficiency and access to information
  • Comply with legal obligations
  • Ensure that historical records are captured and maintained in perpetuity
