BAS 150: Using State Archives Retention Schedules Workshop
The New York State Archives develops retention schedules to help local governments and state agencies efficiently dispose of records they no longer need to keep. This workshop will describe how the State Archives develops retention schedules, show how to create office retention schedules specific to the needs of a single office, and examine options for disposing of records. Participants will learn to identify appropriate retention periods for records and be better able to devise systems for managing records disposition. This workshop is typically offered in the fall.
