Records Management - Coastal Carolina University
In This Section

Records Management is a system to control the creation, organization, use, retention, disposal, and selective preservation of public records. For South Carolina State Institutions, such as Coastal Carolina University, Records Management ensures that administrative and academic records are maintained and destroyed per the South Carolina Public Records Act of 1973, as amended in 1990.

According to the South Carolina Public Records Act and Freedom of Information Act, public records are defined as "all books, papers, maps, photographs, cards, tapes, recordings, or other documentary materials regardless of physical form or characteristics prepared, owned, used, in the possession of, or retained by a public body." This broad definition includes materials such as paper, microfilm, electronic records (such as computer disks), maps, photographs, films, sound recordings, etc.
