Last updated August 12, 2005


The University of Nebraska serves the citizens of the state and has a responsibility to preserve the history of the University for future generations. The goals of this records retention policy are: 1) to identify documents that must be retained permanently or temporarily due to federal or state legal requirements or for valid administrative reasons, 2) to provide guidance and clarification on which documents have lasting archival value to the people of the state and should be preserved in the University Archives, 3) to provide for the routine and timely disposal of documents which need not be retained for legal or administrative reasons and have no historical value.
