Each University of Delaware department head (Vice President, Dean, Director, or Department Chairman) is responsible for appointing at least one individual within their department to serve as liaison to access services of the records management program. Normally, only the head of each individual unit and the person appointed department records management contact, have access to records stored in the University Records Center. It is possible for a department to have multiple and /or alternate contact people if deemed appropriate by the department head.
A list of current records management contacts is maintained at the University Archives. Departments are encouraged to report changes on an Appointment of Department Contact form, as they occur, to avoid record service delays.
All records management contacts are offered training to help them meet their records management responsibilities. (See also training.)
