Preserving IU History through the Box Clean Up

Earlier this year, UITS announced that Indiana University will retire Box cloud storage in March of 2021. If you use the storage service, the files you keep will be migrated to a new system. But what about those files you no longer need? Prior to dumping any files in the trash, the University Archives encourages you to consider transferring these files to your campus archives. 

Do the files document a decision or action taken by your unit? Do you have photos or promotional items from a program or an event? Capturing these files now can help preserve the history of IU! Please reach out to iurm@indiana.edu to get started. You’ll be connected with an archivist to discuss the files you have, what you no longer need, and what may be appropriate to transfer. 

To learn more about the materials typically sent to the University Archives in Bloomington, see our collection policy. For general guidance on university-wide records management or the archival practices on other IU campuses, check out the information on this site!
