As time goes by and with the increasing number of activities, the volume of archives created by a government body increases enormously without having a specialized administrative unit that can manage and retain them. Given the fact that these archives could be subject to physical damage or loss, and the act or retrieval might be an impossible undertaking, there was a dire need to have a body that manage, collect, retain and retrieve the government archives and records. Thus, the National Center for Archives & Records was established by Royal Decree No. (M / 55) on 23 Shawwal 1409 AH and is administratively linked to the President of the Royal Court. To that end and to follow suite, MU Rector, Dr. Khalid Al-Muqren, realized the necessity of establishing a center for archives and records at the university. The primary role of the center is to manage and retain the university archives, and to ensure they are protected and confidential based on the tasks and terms of reference set by the university organizational structure.
