Retention vs Send to Archive

“Permanently Retain” means that the Responsible Department is in charge of storing those documents into perpetuity. The records may be stored in the office or off-site. That decision is left up to each Responsible Department. The Responsible Department needs to retain access to these documents and be able to retrieve and produce them if asked. The Responsible Department maintains ownership of them.

“Send to University Archives” means that those records are to be transferred to the DePaul University Archives. The University Archives is a functioning office located on the third floor of the Richardson Library on the Lincoln Park campus. The University Archives will take ownership of the transferred records and maintain them into perpetuity.
