Consultation Requests

The Records Management Program is happy to meet with any unit to help it determine how long to keep their digital and paper-based records and what to ultimately do with their records.  

We offer consultation services that include:

  • records inventory and retention plan development;
  • on-site appraisal and space evaluations;
  • assistance in the development of filing systems and filenaming conventions;
  • assistance in planning digitization and document management implementations;
  • training in all areas of application of records management policies and procedures; and
  • liaison services between units and the Bentley Historical Library.

To request a consultation, please contact us at UMrecords@umich.edu.
