Records Management Services

The University Archives serves as the institutional memory of UNC Charlotte. It is the official repository for university records of enduring administrative, fiscal, legal and historical value. We also offer records analysis services to the university.

We work with university offices to interpret the North Carolina University General Records Retention and Disposition schedule, which governs how long particular records are to be retained, when they can be destroyed, and which records should be sent to the University Archives. We also provide assistance with performing records surveys and inventories, creating program-specific retention schedules, preparing records for archival transfer, and retrieving materials from records center storage.

If you have questions about the records schedule or about transferring records to the University Archives, or if you would like records analysis services such as those described above, please contact the Department of Special Collections and University Archives at or 704-687-1170.

More information about preserving and tranferring born-digital University records can be found here.
