Records Storage Box Packing Instructions

  1. Only Standard Records Storage Boxes will be accepted (12H x 12W x 15D). Check with The Archives to see if free records storage boxes or book boxes are available.
  2. Pack boxes with records only.
  3. Place folders in the upright position within the box. Do not place folders on top of folders within the box.
  4. Boxes must be labeled with the Department Name, Records Series Title, and Span Date.
  5. Do not write on the lid.
  6. Label the short side of the box.
  7. Use a Black Felt Tip Marker to label the box.
  8. Please do not overfill boxes. --Rule of thumb: If you can't easily lift and move the box repeatedly, then we can't either.
