PURPOSE

The ctcLink Document Repository (cDR) serves to facilitate implementation of the ctcLink project and the continuing use and function of ctcLink as an ERP.

CONDUCT AND ABUSE of SERVICE

Under no circumstances shall a user create or store personal or non-ctcLink related content in the CDR. 

Sharing content in the cDR is strictly limited to employees of the Washington state community and technical college system. If anyone outside of this employee group requests access to information in the cDR they should be directed to the cDR Manager.

No personally Identifying Information (PII) should be recorded on any documents in this repository. Personally identifiable information includes the student’s name, Social Security number and date of birth. EMPLID alone without Student Name or any other PII information is acceptable.

Users understand that original and official records should be stored on agency or state computer "systems of record." The Box online storage solution for the cDR, acts as a "system of engagement" rather than a "system of record."

Users agree not to include, as content, links to documents on Google Drive, this includes Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slide and other services that Google may make available in the future. The exception to this is content that lives strictly in the College Collaboration folder made for each college by the cDR Digital Asset Manager.
