Banner Document Management System (BDM)

Banner Document Management system (BDM) has replaced ZyLAB for the management and archiving of student documents. All ZyLAB documents have been transferred to BDM.

BDM allows both scanned and electronic documents to be archived and indexed for easy retrieval. It has a significantly better indexing system than ZyLAB, which will allow searching by Student ID, Term, Document Type and a variety of other fields. It is fully integrated with Banner, allowing both the archiving and retrieval of documents from within Banner, and compared to ZyLAB, has improved options for directly archiving electronic documents without needing to print and scan them, saving both time and trees.
