We are in the process of developing a records management program here 
and I need an idea of how much space is generally needed by universities 
for storing semi-active records.

I'm hoping someone who is working in a university or college setting can 
give me a guestimate of how many departments/offices they have, how much 
they receive annually from the depts, and what percentage of that 
eventually makes it's way into the archives.

Alternatively, if you find that your semi-active/archive record storage 
space is more than adequate for your needs (or hopelessly inadequate), 
you could just let me know how much space you have and that might work 
just as well.

Thanks very much,
Karen Langley
