Go to start of metadata

Record series are units of files or documents arranged according to a filing system or kept together because they:

  • Relate to a particular subject or function
  • Result from the same activity
  • Document a specific kind of transaction
  • Examples include personnel files, procurement files, or logbooks from a research project. Records should be organized and maintained by series while they are in the active office areas and when they are transferred to storage at the Federal Records Center in San Bruno.
