You are considered a "Record Custodian" when you are a...              

  • Meeting secretary or minute-taker
  • Record Filer
  • Archivist
  • Information keeper and storer

This material will help you to identify:

  • When you are the "custodian" of a record, and what your role and responsibility is to hold this record.
  • What records are transitory and can be discarded after use.
  • What records are duplicates and can be deleted or placed in confidential waste.
