Daily Bulletin title

December 12, 2013

Notice from the Virginia Library

General Schedule 111, College and University records, has been completely overhauled and is available along with other General Schedules for state agencies at http://www.lva.virginia.gov/agencies/records/sched_state/index.htm.

With this update, the number of active series was reduced from 139 to 81. While you adjust to the new schedule, we strongly suggest using our searchable database to help locate appropriate series. The search feature is available at http://www.lva.virginia.gov/agencies/records/sched_state/search.asp and works best when you search on a single word in the “series description” field.

RM3 forms once completed must be forwarded to Cheryl Miller (the college’s designated Records Manager) for approval.  Once approval is granted an approved form will be returned to you in college mail and the records may be disposed of as indicated on the form.  The preferred method for disposal at this time is through the CINTAS containers located throughout the college in each department.

If there are any questions regarding the process, please refer to the Records Retention and Destruction link under Financial and Administrative Services on VW Connect or by clicking on the link below:
