Records Management: New information about critical function

ACC’s Records Management Services is now Records and Information Management.

The name change is intended to clarify the department’s role and distinguish it from other college areas that maintain employee or student records, such as Human Resources or Admissions and Records.

As a publicly funded institution, ACC follows state and federal laws regarding records retention. All college business or communication with students – regardless of whether it occurs on a college-owned computer or private device – is subject to these laws. Records and Information Management helps employees comply with the law and with the related college administrative rule through processes for secure records management.

“As everyone knows, we’re in an information age with so much data available at our fingertips,” says Azure Brown, ACC’s records management officer. “We want to ensure we’re following information management laws that apply to publicly funded institutions, while making sure confidential or sensitive information is protected.”

The Records and Information Management webpage includes extensive information to help employees understand the types of college records and communications that must be retained. Â Employees also are encouraged to view a new Records Management webinar covering the basics about records management and retention.
