Data Standards

The College defines standards and guidelines to ensure consistent entry of organization and individual names and addresses into databases used at Otis College. The purpose of having the standard is to prevent duplicate entries in the database and to facilitate meaningful database search criteria. Since some databases will be used by programs throughout Otis College, it is important that the standard be implemented across the college to facilitate information sharing between different database systems deployed at Otis College.



The following two documents (PDF format) outline Otis' data standards:
