Archives and Records Management

Records Services for HMS/HSDM

The Archives and Records Management Program provides services to all offices, departments, and laboratories in the Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine. We can help you ensure that your records are retrievable, reliable, secure, and trustworthy. Managed records are an asset– unmanaged  records are a liability.

Services include:

  • Identification of records eligible for destruction or transfer to the Archives
  • Secure off-site storage of inactive paper-based records and back-up tapes at the Harvard Depository
  • Development of file systems for electronic and paper-based records
  • Training and consultation in email management, recordkeeping systems, and planning for moves, staff transitions, and business continuity
