Record Transfers and Space Management


State agency, court and other State government records are maintained by the State Archives in the main building in Annapolis or at one of the Archivesí off-site locations. In order to determine the location and description of the record you are requesting, please use the Guide to Government Records

The Guide to Government Records provides the name of the agency or court; the type of record (for example; Administrative File, Accounting Records, Correspondence, Foster Care File, Ledger, Minutes, etc.) which the Archives calls the records series; the record series number (for example; T3351, C200, S11); and the location of the record. Locations beginning with the letters HF, OR, CW and BA are found at one of our off-site warehouses. Locations without letters are found at the main Archives building in Annapolis.

Requests for files located at one of our offsite warehouses (HF, OR, CW or BA) should be faxed to (410) 974-2525. Please contact Sheila Simms at (410) 260-6430, if you have any questions.

Effective December 1, 2010, the Candlewood fax number will no longer be in service. You can contact the Archives by phone at 410-260-6400 or by fax at 410-974-2525.
