Please note that we are to contact University Archives before destroying documents- they will give you direction on what can be trashed, what needs kept for a period of time, and what they want to have transferred to them and you’ll need to schedule a date for that Transfer. They may want Communication pieces- such as letters, printed emails, newspaper articles, etc.  They do not want hanging folders and want standard storage boxes used as much as possible.
