Procedures for Sending Materials to the Archives

When an office or department has identified records it wants to archive, there are three (3) basic steps the office should take:

  1. Contact University Archives for an assessment. Assessments may be conducted on-site or by email.
  2. If the records are appropriate for transfer to the University Archives, complete the University Archives Intake Request Form (PDF).
  3. Put the completed University Archives Intake Request Form (PDF) in the box(es) being transferred to University Archives.

Please follow the detailed procedures with the appropriate shipping form to send documents to the University Archives.
