Managing materials

Materials created by Stanford affiliates represent some of the University's most valuable assets. These records may support administrative decision-making and operations, demonstrate compliance, and document Stanford's institutional history. Just like other University assets, these records need to be properly managed. These guidelines will help you:

  • Effectively organize and maintain your records
  • Improve efficiency and access to information
  • Comply with legal obligations
  • Ensure that historical records are captured and maintained in perpetuity
