Definitions Edit

Archival value refers to

public records selected by state archives as having enduring worth for any of the following reasons: the records document the development of this state from earlier times, including the territorial period; the records evidence the creation, organization, development, operation, functions, or effects of an agency; the records contain significant information about persons, things, problems, or conditions relating to a state or local agency.[1]
the ongoing usefulness or significance of records, based on the administrative, legal, fiscal, evidential, or historical information they contain, justifying their continued preservation. In general, records with archival value are estimated to make up only three to five percent of an organization's records.[2]
