Guidelines for the use of Cloud computing
The cloud is a broad term for describing a service on the Internet where you can store files, use/edit documents, or delete stored information from anywhere as long as you have a computer, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or any other internet-enabled device. Examples of cloud services include Dropbox, Windows Live, GoogleDocs, Evernote. RIM has released a set of practical guidelines for staff to follow when using cloud computing. A set of Frequently Asked Questions is also available.
The Curtin Records & Information System (CRIS) was launched in April 2013. CRIS is the one stop shop for:
- requesting the creation of new files or volumes,
- searching for files created for areas by RIM, and,
- requesting permission to transfer inactive records to RIM for storage or destruction.
The Western Australian University Sector Disposal Authority (WAUSDA)
The Western Australian University Sector Disposal Authority (WAUSDA) was approved in April 2012. Disposal authorities are the tools used to determine how long to keep records. The four public universities in WA will now use the one common disposal authority to sentence records. For more information on the WAUSDA please click here.
