Records Management

The Records Management Program provides services to all departments and offices of the University by helping them efficiently manage their university records. It helps departments and offices ensure that their records are retrievable, reliable, and secure. Well-managed records are important because managed records are an asset, unmanaged records are a liability.

Records Policies

The Digital Collections and Archives administers a few records policies.

This website also lists significant Tufts recordkeeping guidelines and policies. Several departments and offices across the University administer these guidelines and policies.

Records Consultations and Transfers

The Records Management Program is happy to meet with any department or office at the University to help it determine how long to keep records and what to ultimately do with their records. The Program is also happy to give advice about storing, destroying, or managing paper or electronic records.

The Records Management Program can also help departments transfer university records to the Digital Collections and Archives.

Records Training and Advice

The Records Management Program can work with departments to help them find appropriate on-site and off-site storage solutions for paper and electronic records. The Program can also work with departments to determine appropriate reformatting solutions and confidential records destruction solutions.
