Directory of University Records

Please be advised the Directory of University Records is undergoing revisions. Some of the RRSDAs and PIBs may be out of date. Anticipated launch of the revised site is spring 2023. Please direct any questions to the Records Management Archivist

The Directory of University Records (DUR) is a guide to the records and record-keeping systems maintained by Simon Fraser University throughout its administrative offices and academic faculties, departments, schools, centres and research institutes. It was created and is maintained by the university's Archives and Records Management Department. See DUR Overview for more information on the main principles underlying the Directory and its intended uses.

Records Retention Schedules and Disposal Authorities (RRSDAs)

RRSDAs regulate the retention periods of various series of records and specify the final disposition of the records at the end of the retention period (destruction or transfer to Archives).
