Consider Retiring Records to the Archives

The following is for Williams' staff and faculty only. Please consider reviewing your department or committee files, weeding duplicate information, and retiring files of permanent value to the College Archives. This will ensure that important records are safely stored, superfluous records are destroyed, and that you are keeping only those files that are of current use to you. Please contact the Records Manager to ascertain if your department has a records retention schedule. This schedule provides individualized guidance based on legal and fiscal requirements.
