U-M Records Management

The Records Management Program offers support and guidance to University units, departments and offices with the goal of bringing a collaborative approach to University-wide record-keeping practices, freeing office space, and ensuring the retention of vital documents. The program offers support in a number of areas, such as:

  • on-site appraisals and records transfers to the University Archives
  • development and guidance in the deployment of digital record-keeping systems
  • records inventory and scheduling
  • planning and support in digital record-keeping implementation
  • training in the application of records management policies and best practices
The links on the left, as well as the Records Policy and Procedures Manual, provide comprehensive information about the program and policies in further detail. Please email the Records Management Program with your questions and/or comments. We’d love to hear from you!
