University Records Management Workshops

University Records Management is offering a number of virtual workshops for staff and faculty throughout the fall, including Records Coordinator Training, Building Internal Records Policies and Practices, and quick Retention Review sessions focused on specific records types (such as Academic and Research Records, Human Resources and Fiscal Records, and Administrative and Miscellaneous Records).

University Records Management offers these workshop to assist the Mason community, as improper handling of university records can affect audits, accreditation, litigation, and more. Each workshop is limited to ten attendees. Please see dates and times below, and register at the associated link. All workshops are available on the Libraries’ calendar.
