INSTRUCTION SHEET

For National Archives Form 40
Disposal List (Photographed or Microphotographed Records )
COLUMN
1. Item No.: Each accumulation of records kept in separately organized files, or

selected from other records in organized files, should be listed as a single item.
Thus, if an entire decimal file is to be listed, it should be listed as one item.
If only the parts represented by certain of the decimal classification headings
are to be listed, each major heading or uninterrupted sequence of headings should
be listed as a separate item. Subheadings, folders, and documents contained in
any accumulation of records susceptible of being listed as one item should not be
listed individually. Items listed by any one office should be arbitrarily numbered
in consecutive order.

Photographic Sample Herewith: Enter an "X" in this column if a sample of the photographic reproduction made of the records included in the item is transmitted with the list. A photographic sample is not required for every item, but the same ples furnished should adequately represent all forms and sizes of files reproduced and their schemes of arrangement. The samples should be samples of the reproduce tion as made for preservation and will be returned by the National Archives. The National Archives will examine these samples primarily for the purpose of deter. mining whether the integrity of the files has been preserved. It will ordinarily accept without question the certification of the agency with regard to the other standards established by regulations of the National Archives Council for the reproduction of records by photographic or microphotographic processes. In order that the raising of any questions with regard to lists of photographed or microphotographed records submitted to the Archivist of the United States may be avoided as far as practicable, all agencies are urged to consult with the National Archives in planning any projects for the photographing or microphotographing of records when the projects will result in the submission of such lists. For this purpose officials may communicate with the records division or office of the National Archives maintaining liaison with their agencies or they may communi. cate with the Records Appraisal Officer (telephone: National Archives, exten. sion 347).

File or Form Numbers; Title and Description: If the records listed as an item are composed of a single form, give the form number and title, with additional descrip: tion in cases where the title is not self-explanatory. If the records consist of the documents filed under a particular filing classification number, give the file number and the heading for which it stands, with additional description in cases where the heading is not self-explanatory. Otherwise, give the title or designation of the unit or class of records, with any additional description that may be neces. sary to indicate the nature of its contents. Appraisal will be facilitated if descriptions give some indication of the function served by the records described. Use of the term "miscellaneous" should be avoided inasmuch as it is not adequately descriptive for purposes of appraisal.

Inclusive Dates: Indicate the years, and months if the period is other than one of even calendar years, during which the materials included in the item were accumu. lated as organized records.

Kind of Copies: Do not indicate the "kind of copies" of the records that have been photographed or microphotographed except when necessary for purposes of identification; as, for example, when there were two or more record copies within the stated scope of the list and only one was photographed or microphotographed. It is presumed that in reporting the list to the Archivist the agency intends to obtain disposal authorization for all records that have been photographed or microphotographed and that are described within the scope of the list as defined in the heading or subheading, except the photographic or microphotographic copies

of the records.

APPENDIX V-INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING DISPOSAL SCHEDULES

AND SAMPLES OF SCHEDULES

INSTRUCTION SHEET

For National Archives Form 108

Comprehensive or Disposal Schedule (Papers, etc.) COLUMN

Item No.: Each accumulation of records that is intended to be retained for the same period of time and that is kept in separately organized files or that is selected from other records in organized files for a different period of retention should be scheduled as one item, regardless of quantity, unless an enumerative breakdown of the contents is desirable for purposes of the agency. Items scheduled by any one office should be arbitrarily numbered in consecutive order.

1.

2. Sample Submitted: Enter an “X" in this column if a sample is transmitted with the schedule.

If a sample of records having the same form or character has been transmitted with a previous schedule or disposal list, the date of that schedule or list may be entered in this column and transmittal of a further sample omitted. No sample need be submitted for items indicated in comprehensive schedules as items to be reta ined permanently. A11 samples that will not become disposable as soon as the schedule becomes effective should be marked in this colum for "return" to the agency. In special circumstances the agency may request that the Archivist of the United States waive the submission of samples.

3. File or Form Numbers; Title and Description: If the records listed as an item are composed of

a single form, give the form number and title, with additional description in cases where the title is not self-explanatory. If the records consist of the documents filed under a particular filing classification number, give the file number and the heading for which it stands, with additional description in cases where the heading is not self-explanatory. Otherwise, give the title or designation of the unit or class of records, with any additional description that may be necessary to indicate the nature of its contents. Appraisal will be facilitated if descriptions give some indication of the function served by the records described. Statements justi. fying the disposal of items are not required but, if supplied, will greatly facilitate appraisal and therefore expedite action by the National Archives. Use of the term “ miscellaneous" should be avoided inasmuch as it is not adequately descriptive for purposes of appraisal.

Period of Time to Be Retained: This period may be expressed (1) as a period of years, months, weeks, or days that is to elapse from the time of the records being filed or (2) by a specific date marking the end of a period that is to elapse after the schedule becomes effective. The period may also be expressed (3) by referring to the occurrence of a definite future event, or kind of event, that will be datable upon its occurrence but the date of which is not determinable in advance, for example, the termination of the present war or the discharge of enlisted men of the Navy. The event or kind of event may be contingent, for example, the abandonment of Army camps or the renegotiation of contracts. The reference to the event or kind of event may be for the purpose of defining a further fixed period of time that is to elapse. after its occurrence, for example, "5 years after death of employee." A period not fixed in advance may be specified alternatively to a fixed period, for example, " 5 years or until photographed or microphotographed in accordance with regulations of the National Archives Council."

Kind of Copies: If no statement of "kind of copies" is made in an item, it will be assumed that the agency intends to dispose of all copies of the records described in the item that are in the office or offices to which the item applies. If it is the agency's intention to dispose of certain copies only and to retain others, the item should specify clearly the kinds of copies to be dis. posed of. Any appropriate language may be used for this purpose if it distinguishes clearly between the kinds of copies to be disposed of and the kinds of copies to be retained. Examples: "All copies except those in Division of Accounts"; "Unsigned carbon copies only"; "Alphabetically arranged set only, numerically arranged set to be retained." If the existence of copies of the same record in an office or offices other than the office or offices to which the item applies is pertinent to the appraisal of the copies to be disposed of, the existence of the other copies should be mentioned. Examples: "Other copies are retained in the Executive Office of the Secre. tary"; "Originals are retained in the General Accounting Office." Extra copies of documents preserved for convenience of reference only, in addition to one or more record copies, are not "records" for purposes of disposal (see "D" on the reverse of this sheet). Extra copies and other nonrecord materials need not be scheduled and should not be scheduled unless the scheduling thereof in comprehensive schedules is desirable for purposes of the agency.
