Updates from University Records Management

George Mason University - Thu, 05/18/2017 - 16:38

Questions about managing your physical and electronic records?

Join University Records Management for a 1-hour training session, bring your questions, and pick up boxes for records storage. Sessions will be offered this summer from 10am to 11am on Friday, May 26; Friday, June 9; and Friday, June 23 in the Special Collections Research Center Seminar Room (Fenwick Library 2306). Please RSVP to Samara Carter at recmgt@gmu.edu.

University Records Center Closure: Plan Ahead!

The University Records Center will close for renovations during summer 2017. If you are currently prepping boxes for storage or disposal, box labels must be submitted to University Records Management at least two weeks prior to the Center’s closure. Exact closure dates will be posted as soon as they are confirmed. During the closure, University Records Management will not be able to accept new boxes for storage or shredding. Loan services will be available, but turnaround time will take longer than usual. For current information about University Records Management services, please visit their website or e-mail recmgt@gmu.edu with any questions.
