Quiz True or False? Archives will store your permanent records, your confidential records, and your records that need to be destroyed at a later date. FALSE
True/False Archives can’t accept paper records because of space problems. Quiz FALSE!
Myth Buster #1 I have a database of speakers that my department has brought in to speak on campus, OR a database of trees and plants on campus, OR a database of groups that have used a certain room or building for programs
Myth Buster #1 Is it important for me to share this information with University Archives, since it gets backed up by ITSD (provided you are saving it right)? YES! Adina would still like to talk to you about sharing reports and other e-records with Archives.
Concern If I send my materials to Archives, how do I know they’ll be safe there? Preservation Security Access
Myth Buster #2 I have some old newsletters from other departments or university offices. Should I send them to Archives? I am not the creator of these documents so I am not responsible for them. True, you are not responsible for them, but you are a GEM for thinking of Archives. Please send/include when you transfer your departmental records to us.
