Records Management Information

Records Management Information: The Records Management Presentation along with these additional resources will familiarize you with the mandatory requirements for managing your records.

Retention Schedules: The retention schedules are continually revised through organizational changes at WIU. You will find your office listed in the table of contents under your VP Area. Some offices are listed in the schedules by their previous name or VP area. Make sure you also check the University Wide Schedule. It contains seven (7) records not listed under the original schedules and apply to every office on campus. Please contact the university records officer if you need assistance.

Records Disposal Certificate (RDC): The RDC is used to receive permission from the State Records Commission to destroy records. Use the instructions and estimating guide to properly complete the RDC.
