Personal Information Directory (PID): Overview

The Personal Information Directory (PID) contains descriptions of the Personal Information Banks (PIBs) created and maintained by Simon Fraser University. A PIB is a collection of personal information that is organized and capable of being retrieved using an individual's name or an identifying number or some other personal identifier. PIB entries are added to the Directory as PIB records series are identified and sheduled.

Under British Columbia's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, SFU is required to make available to the public a listing of the PIBs it creates and maintains. The purpose of DUR's PID component is to make this listing accessible on-line. A PIB entry in the Personal Information Directory includes the following information:
