Department of Computer Science

Archive Year Index

This is an archive of the information the Department keeps permanently.  Some of this material may also be stored on paper or electronically but this should be a comprehensive record of everything we intend to keep and it will allow us to comply with requests under the Data Protection Act and the Freedom of Information Act relatively easily and reliably.  Thus it is an archive in the OED sense "collection of documents or records;  place where they are kept".  It is not an archive as the word is sometimes used in Computer Science.

Some elements in these archives are only available to staff.   It was decided in 2004-5 that most restricted minutes would be made public after four years.   This excludes examination board minutes which have to be kept confidential permanently for Data Protection reasons.
