Administration of Inactive Records
Archives Technical Information Series #49
Developing and operating a facility for the storage of inactive records is a significant part of a local government's records management program. The effectiveness of a facility, however, is directly dependent upon how soundly it is administered.

The purpose of this publication is to outline and describe the steps necessary to ensure efficient and effective operation of inactive records storage.
