Transferring College Records

Administrative records, publications, correspondence, and other materials--in both paper and electronic formats--related to and created in the course of the official activities of Simmons College offices and officers are the property of Simmons College and often have considerable value beyond their current administrative uses. 

The Simmons College Archives is the official repository for College Records, and the staff of the College Archives is available to consult with College administrators, staff, and faculty to determine the operational, legal, fiscal, historical and/or other research value of any Simmons College records. 

The College Archives acknowledges that many records produced by departments may be of a confidential nature.  Appropriate restrictions on access will be determined by Archives staff and administrative officers and enforced by Archives staff. 

Archives staff will arrange for the systematic transfer of records to either the College Archives permanent collection, an appropriate temporary records storage facility, or disposal.

For more information on transferring College records and other materials, or to discuss files management practices, contact the College Archives staff at
