The Records Management department under Business Services provides information to campus departments regarding the proper procedures for retaining and discarding university records. The program assists departments with developing a "Records Retention and Disposal Schedule," which would be in compliance with federal and state regulations.

Every office and department on campus is faced with the challenge of storage space, as well as decisions about which records to keep and which to discard. Records Management assists departments with these decisions and provides effective solutions for the proper retention of university records, special collections and university archives. We strive to achieve economy and efficiency in the creation, maintenance, and disposal of public records

Records management affords legal protection for the institution by satisfying federal and state statutory requirements and insures that historically significant records are preserved to document the great history of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
