Retention Schedule Search Help
First, we'd like to suggest that you take a look at our Retention Schedule Help page, if you're not yet familiar with Indiana retention schedules, what they contain, and how they work.
If you are familiar, then let's move on to how to use our online Retention Schedule Search!
There are two ways to search:
Find the entire Records Retention Schedule for a state agency, division, or other unit of government.
Clicking the green Retention Schedules button will show a Category list that allows you to narrow down the schedule type you're looking for.
From there, you can:
Find Individual Record Series.
Clicking the purple Record Series button will open a search page which allows you to look for all Record Series that meet the criteria you enter:
You can use any or all of the search fields, but your searches will be more productive for you if you know how those fields work:
After you've made all your search choices, click the Search button, and a list of Record Series will appear, with 25 series shown per page.
Finally, click the Title on any of the listed Record Series to see the Details page for that series, which will show the full information, including description, confidentiality, and retention instructions.
If the Record Series is active, there'll also be links to see all Record Series on the same Retention Schedule, schedule, or view/print the whole schedule in traditional published print layout. If the series is Discontinued, those links won't appear.
If you have further questions about how to use the Retention Schedule search, or need to report a technical problem, please contact arobinson@iara.IN.gov.
