Directory of Records

The Directory of Records (DOR) is the primary tool through which the Records Management policy (IM7700) is implemented. DOR functions as the global view of the records generated by the university and divides this view into a classification scheme consisting of twelve broad sections of related records.

Explanation of Fields in DOR

DOR serves the university community by:

  1. Providing a classification system for the naming and organization of paper and electronic records.
  2. Providing standardized terminology for the identification of records series that exist across multiple departments.
  3. Establishing standardized retention rules for records held in university offices and describing how these records are to be disposed of once they reach the end of their active life.
