Retrieving Records

To access inactive records that University Archives & Historical Collections (UAHC) manages, call (517) 355-2330 or e-mail archives@msu.edu. If the retrieval request is urgent, please call. Your request for records should include the following information (found on the office's copy of the transmittal/inventory form):

  • Tracking number
  • Box number
  • Folder number or title
  • Document number (if appropriate)
  • Person and office requesting the record

Typical delivery time for retrieved records is two to three days, but it may be a week under certain circumstances.

Retrieved records must be returned promptly to UAHC in order to prevent misplacement or loss.
