Custodial History

The Maine State Archives holds the Maine State Government’s records of historical value. Records are transferred by state agencies to the Archives based on schedules set up by the records management system. These schedules describe the type of records created by the agencies and for how long they should be kept. (MRS Title 5, chapter 6, section 95-C)

Linked below are the general schedules which apply to all departments. Department-specific schedules, if any, are also included. Only current (most recent or active schedules) are included in these lists. Material may have come in under prior versions of the schedule with different descriptions or time periods.
