 10 min Retention scheduleMarlayna Christensen

Retention schedule has a limited number of items that are marked for "permanent retention" and many of them are not appropriate for university archives. The records manager is often needed to emphasize the importance of the retention of records. Many of the things that are of most interest to the university archives goes beyond the "permanent retention" category. The permanent retention records are the bare minimum of what should be retained.
