Records Management's purpose is to help facilitate the preservation of the records of Brigham Young University. This is done for legal and financial purposes. Relevant and important historical documents are sent to the University Archives for preservation. Records Management also helps all University departments with the assessment, preservation, and destruction of all departmental records.

There are many ways to store records; Records Management uses electronic storage, e-mail, micrographics, digital imaging, microfilm, hard coy, and other formats to store records. Storage for the departmental records is provided through the Records Center until the inactive records are either archived with University Archives, or disposed of.
