  • Quiz

    1) How long do I need to keep student employee timesheets?

    GU205 2) How about travel reimbursements?

    GU99 3) Work schedules?


  • Quiz

    True or False? • Archives will store your permanent records, your

    confidential records, and your records that need to be destroyed at a later date.


  • True/False • Archives can’t accept paper records because of

    space problems.



  • Myth Buster #1

    • I have

    a database of speakers that my department has brought in to speak on campus, OR a database of trees and plants on campus, OR a database of groups that have used a certain room or building for programs

  • Myth Buster #1

    Is it important for me to share this information with University Archives, since it gets backed up by ITSD (provided you are saving it right)?

    YES! Adina would still like to talk to you about sharing reports and other e-records with Archives.

  • Concern

    • If I send my materials to Archives, how do I know they’ll be safe there?

    • Preservation • Security • Access

  • Myth Buster #2

    • I have some old newsletters from other departments or university offices. Should I send them to Archives? I am not the creator of these documents so I am not responsible for them.

    True, you are not responsible for them, but you are a GEM for thinking of Archives. Please send/include when you transfer your departmental records to us.
