* One policy covers all buildings in your organisation: the service is not just limited to one archive, library or records store. This means that for a local authority, all schools, municipal offices, libraries, museums and archives will be covered; for a bank, all branches will be covered, as well as head office and central records, as well as any material retained externally with commercial records management firms.
