Cage Guidelines

Carruthers Hall On-Site Storage of Physical Records:

In compliance with the University of Virginia Institutional Physical Records Storage Standards paper documents must be stored in an environment with normal HVAC conditions for an office space. Boxes and file cabinets should be located away from direct contact to HVAC vents, radiators, and portable heaters. Area should be free from pests (insects and rodents). Structure should be able to support the weight of records. No overhead piping or close contact to drains, sinks or other water access areas is allowed. In accordance with said regulations Carruthers Cage may not be used as storage facility for paper documents.
