Identifying Archival Materials

Note any documents produced by your offices that contain information on the origin, organization, procedures and functions of Jefferson Lab. Consider whether the document could act as a link in the historical chain of Jefferson Lab activities or events.

If uncertain of the historical value of documents, do not schedule or discard them. Instead, review the records with their creator(s) or Records Administrator, to establish their historical value. Route records deemed to have historical value to the Records Management office with a memo indicating such.
