Records Management deals with the creation and implementation of efficient and systematic controls for managing records and information activities. This process begins from the point at which the records are created or received through the final disposition.
Founded in 1985, the Dartmouth College Records Management Program had three goals in mind:
- Bring a consistent approach to Dartmouth record keeping practices
- Freeing up valuable space via centralized records storage
- Ensuring the retention of vital documents
- Lifecycle Management
To assist College Offices, Divisions, Departments and Institutes in the management of records and information across their entire lifecycle: includes capture, distribution, use, storage, retrieval, protection, security, retention, preservation and disposition.
- Providing Services
To provide Dartmouth faculty and staff with the knowledge (best practices, policies, procedures and international standards), the assistance (customer service, in-person consultations, services and trainings), and the resources (paper storage, digital solutions, and connections) to effectively and efficiently manage the records and information of the College.
- Ensuring Protection
To ensure the College creates and preserves records and information as evidence, complies with statutes, regulations and authorities, mitigates risks by always having records when they are needed, and provides defensible disposition when records are no longer needed.
The Records Management staff is split between two locations:
On Campus: Berry Library, 3rd Floor, Jerry and Vi
Off Campus: 56 Etna Rd, Suite 105, Lebanon NH 03766
