Trash or Treasure: Guidance on Retaining your Office Records


Thursday, June 16, 2022, 10:00am to 11:30am



Have you ever wondered, "How long do I need to keep my office records? Can I throw them away when I am done with them?" This workshop, by the Harvard University Archives, provides tools and advice to help you determine how long to keep your records and what to do when you no longer need to hold onto them. Whether you feel like you’re drowning in information or you're concerned that you're keeping records too long or not long enough, this workshop is for you.

Who should attend: 

All employees who want to effectively manage their office's administrative or program records.

What you will learn:

  • What the resources are to help determine how long to keep your office records

  • What to do with records when they are no longer needed by your office

  • How to use Harvard's guide for records commonly found across the University

This workshop will be followed one week later by an office hours session held by the presenter to address further questions.
