Records Program


The UK Records Program coordinates records management efforts throughout the University system, ensuring that records procedures are consistent and fulfill internal needs and external requirements. With the assistance of the liaisons in University colleges and departments, the Program helps UK units apply the State University Model Records Retention Schedule to their records and advises them on such topics as records reformatting and storage. The Records Program is an important first step in capturing and preserving University records for the University Archives.
