  • Awareness initiatives
  • Health, safety, and security
  • Rules and regulations

  • Investigation files
  • Meeting minutes
  • Policies, procedures, and regulations
  • Publications and websites (see Depositing Official Yale Publications)

Office of record

Individual offices that are not responsible for the creation of such records, but that maintain duplicates or related materials, should destroy these files after they are no longer needed.
