State Records Center

​​​The State Records Center is a warehouse that accepts records from Oregon state agencies after they're no longer needed for day-to-day business. It's operated by the Archives Division.

Once an agency transfers permanent records to the State Archives, they become our custody. By contrast, the originating agency retains custody of the records it stores at the State Records Center and can request their return anytime.

Holdings are tracked using state-of-the-art technology, guaranteeing customers a 24-hour turnaround on file requests. When boxes of records meet their retention periods, staff at the State Records Center arrange for their destruction.
