Out of Sight: Offsite Records Storage

Monday, April 1, 2024, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Harvard ID required, Workshop,

This is a virtual workshop held via Zoom.

This workshop, by the Harvard University Archives, will present the step-by-step process of sending records to off-site storage at the Harvard Depository. We cover everything from how to pack a box to how to complete the deposit paperwork.

Who should attend: Employees who have not yet sent records to storage as well as anyone in charge of packing and depositing boxes who would like a refresher course.

What you will learn

  • How to identify records eligible for storage
  • How to pack and label boxes correctly
  • How to complete the paperwork and expedite your deposit
  • How to recall records back to your office

Note: You should be familiar with the General Records Schedule (GRS) and how to apply it to your records before taking this class. If you have not used the GRS, register for our Trash or Treasure workshop.

This workshop will be followed one week later by an office hours session held by the presenter to address further questions.
