Our two Records Management sections (State and County/Local) provide assistance and education for Indiana government offices in managing, retaining, preserving, and disposing of public records.
IARA Records Analysts work with state agencies and local offices to develop and update records retention schedules that balance the storage needs of the government office with state/federal retention requirements, as well as the need for preservation of documents with permanent historical value.
Our Electronic Records Program provides assistance to both County and Local government staff on best practices for storing and destroying electronic records, and help with transferring electronic records to the Indiana Archives.
