We all deal with a lot of paper and electronic records and data in our work at Tufts. Some stuff we can throw away quickly and some stuff we have to keep for a long time.
One of the challenges we all face is figuring out where to put this stuff. There are a wide range of places to store electronic and paper files, but not every storage environment is a proper environment for Tufts data and records.
Not sure about where to store data and records? The Digital Collections and Archives has a resource for you. The DCA’s Storing University Records guidelines provides best practices for storing electronic and paper files and describes a range of paper and electronic storage environments that can provide appropriate solutions for your document and data storage needs. These include Tufts and cloud-based solutions for electronic files and advice for storing paper records on-site and off-site.
