Records Services

The creation and proper management of records is central to the success of the University's learning, teaching, research and administration activities. As a publicly funded institution, the University must maintain a reliable "institutional memory", produce evidence of its activities and decision-making, and retain an authentic record of its contributions to education, research, academic pursuits and the wider community.

All staff, volunteers, titleholders, visitors, adjuncts, affiliates, research students and University-controlled entities are responsible for the creation, capture and management of University records, including research data. Recordkeeping Fundamentals briefly explains your responsibilities.

Records Services supports good recordkeeping by providing timely, cost-effective services that include:

  • professional advice and assistance
  • centralised file storage and retrieval
  • electronic document management by means of the University's recordkeeping system, HPE Content Manager (formerly TRIM and HPRM)
  • educational and outreach programs.
