Records & Archives

The Department of Records, Archives and Information Management Services (RAIMS) was established in 1990 by County resolution. It properly stores all the inactive records of the fifty-five departments in the County until the records have fulfilled their retention as defined by Retention and Disposition Schedule for New York Local Government Records (LGS-1). The staff microfilms and scans the County’s permanent records and is vigilant in safeguarding the historical volumes and records through preservation best practices.
