Records Management and Retention (RMR)


The goal of Records Management and Retention (RMR) at New Mexico State University is to ensure that NMSU records comply with state and federal statutes related to maintenance, preservation and disposition of university documents.

  • Records Management is the systematic control of records throughout their life cycle including their disposition.
  • Retention is the period of time during which records must be maintained by an organization because they are needed for operational, legal, fiscal, historical or other purposes.

The FSA – Records Management and Retention (RMR) office and the NMSU Library Archives & Special Collections department collaborate to ensure NMSU’s historical information is preserved within the university. For information regarding archive materials please contact University Archives.
