University Archives is a permanent repository for University records identified as having lasting historical or administrative significance. The University Records Center, located in D.D. Dougherty Hall, is for the temporary storage of records designated for either the Archives or destruction. The office provides the necessary services and oversight to monitor a State-mandated, university-wide records-management program. Records held in the Records Center are still owned by the campus offices who created them, and can be retrieved by the creating office at any time. Records in University Archives are the property and responsibility of the Archives and are rarely removed.
