Managing Records in all Formats

Is your department’s shared network drive a black hole of mystery files? Are there hundreds of unsorted emails languishing in your inbox? Learn how Archives and Records Management can help you create a single, organized file guide that can be used to manage your department’s electronic and paper records (including email), which will improve the efficiency of your office.

Store It! Using the Harvard Depository

Do you wonder how long you need to keep office records before you can throw them out? Run out of room for files in your office that you want to keep? Store records at the Harvard Depository! The Harvard Depository records center is the perfect place for your office, department, or lab to store records that you need to keep but don’t use every day. Become skilled at using the Depository, learn how to set up an account, and review step-by-step instructions for packing records and completing transfer paperwork. We will also discuss how to use Harvard’s General Records Schedule and University policies to make informed decisions about your records.

  • Monday, May 21st at noon
  • Monday, June 25th at noon

Workshops are about an hour long. Attendance is free and open to all members of the HMS/HSDM community. No registration required. All workshops take place at the Center for the History of Medicine Conference Room, Countway L2.
