When discarding records according to the Arkansas General Records Retention Schedule from Act 918 of 2005, please contact the Arkansas State Library beforehand and provide a list of the materials slated for discard that fall under the following sections:

•GS 01005 News Releases
•GS 01006 State Publications
•GS 01007 Formal Presentations
•GS 01008 Published Papers / Reports
•GS 01009 Training Materials
•GS 02001 Meeting Minutes
•GS 05006 Audit Reports

This grants the library an opportunity to review the list of items being discarded, and to determine whether or not any of the items should be included in the depository.
