Records Disposal Schedules
Records disposal schedules provide retention periods and disposal actions for records relating to all University activities and functions.
In July 2010, the State Records Council approved a University sector General Disposal Schedule No 24 [GDS24]. This schedule revoked the University of Adelaide Records Disposal Schedules 2001 and 2001.
Staff wishing to dispose of University records, should refer to GDS24 for guidance.
Authorisation is required prior to the destruction of University records.
For further information or assistance, contact the University Archives on ext 35184.
GDS24 should be used in conjunction with the State Records General Disposal Schedule No 15 [v7] for general administrative records. It is available online at
