Announcement-New Partnership for ICRM

September 10, 2018

I would like to share the recent press release issued by Long Island University (LIU) Post Palmer School of Library and Information Science and the Institute of Certified Records Managers (ICRM).  This is another academic program that aligns with the ICRM exam outline and the partnership provides for a credit for Parts 2-4 of the ICRM exams allowing graduates that complete all requirements to apply to the Institute to accept the Certified Records Analyst (CRA) credential as a result of completing the LIU Post program referenced in the press release. 


All the best,



Rae Haliday, CRM

Co-Vice Chairman

ZRA Professional Development Committee
