How do I need to prepare my educational documents for off-site storage?

1. Sort and Organize: Before storing your documents off-site, sort them into categories based on their type, date, or other relevant criteria. Organizing your documents beforehand will make it easier to access them later.

2. Remove Unnecessary Items: Take this opportunity to purge any records that are no longer needed or relevant. Dispose of outdated documents following your organization’s document retention policies and regulations.

3. Boxing: Place the sorted documents into sturdy, archival-quality boxes or containers. Use appropriate-sized boxes to prevent overfilling and potential damage.

4. Labeling: Clearly label each box with information such as the contents, date range, and any other relevant identifiers. This will make it easier to locate specific records when needed.

5. Inventory: Create a detailed inventory list of all the boxes or containers being sent to off-site storage. Include box numbers, contents, and any other relevant information to track your documents.

6. Protective Measures: Consider using archival-quality folders, sleeves, or envelopes to protect individual documents within the boxes. This can help prevent damage from handling, moisture, or environmental factors.
