Storage Requirements & Procedures
Boxes must meet the following criteria to ensure pick-up:
Keep a copy of the completed form for your records. Once we have received and processed your request we will contact you to arrange a pick-up time. After the boxes have been shelved in the URC you will receive an Accession Confirmation which lists the ID numbers assigned to your boxes. File this with your copy of the storage request. You will need to reference these ID numbers whenever you retrieve records.
Records must be packed in a standard storage box (10" x 12" x 15") with a lid that fits securely. Boxes may be ordered from Office Depot or you may request used boxes from us (limited quantities).
What should be noted on the box (short end):
- Box number (assigned by your department)
- Department name
- Any additional information which your department needs to identify the box contents
We usually have recycled boxes that can be reused for storage. Give us a call at 543-0573 to inquire about availability.
