State Records Center

The Indiana State Records Center provides State government with secure storage, transport and destruction of inactive records.

In order to minimize storage costs and to free office space for use by agency staff, the State Records Center provides state agencies with off-site storage for their inactive records. The Records Center will only accept records when an approved retention schedule authorizes the transfer. After transfer, title and ultimate responsibility for the records remains with the agency that created them.

The Records Center provides comprehensive records management services including pick-up and transfer, document retrieval and delivery, and records destruction.

If a member of the public wishes to view records stored at the Records Center, he or she should contact the Indiana State Government agency which holds title to the records. That agency may then request the records from the Records Center. The Records Center staff cannot release records to anyone but a representative from the agency which owns them.
