Indiana United Methodist Church

Historical information about the United Methodist Church as well as instructions on the transfer of Indiana United Methodist Church church records to the DePauw University Archives and Special Collections.

Step 1: Guidelines for Managing Records of the Local Church

Guidelines for Managing Records of the Local Church
This manual was created by the General Conference on Archives and History in 2017. It provides information on records management, storage and suggested retention schedules for records. This guide should be referenced before the transfer of records to the DePauw University Archives and Special Collections.
On page 29, a detailed table is available to aid in record series titles, descriptions, and specific retention information. 

Step 2: Records Transfer

Local church records can be delivered in-person, via mail, email or picked up by Archives staff. A records pick-up should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.  

Step 3: Contact Information

The DePauw University Archives and Special Collections is temporarily located in the Julian Science and Mathematics Center, room 111, while the Roy O. West Library is undergoing renovation. Visitor parking is available behind the Richard E. Peeler Art Center. A DePauw University campus map is available online with up-to-date parking information.
