Information and Records Services

Our mission is to maintain Deakin’s records and the information they contain, enabling us to build on the University’s history, share knowledge and comply with statutory requirements.

Our focus

We support the good governance of information and records at Deakin University – specifically how information is identified, created, stored, disseminated and disposed.

Our services

Records management

Records are our corporate memory – providing evidence of actions and decisions, and representing a vital asset to our daily operations. The team offers records management expertise and advice to support effective and compliant management of university records. This enables our research, learning and teaching, engagement and administration.

Current staff: Find out more about records management including information about transfer, disposal, and management of temporary information.


Deakin University Archives collects and maintains records of Deakin and its predecessor institutions, which have been appraised as having permanent value as evidence of university business and activities, or are determined to have a specific research or teaching value in an area of particular importance or relevance. Our archival collections are held at the Burwood and Waterfront campuses.
