Paper Records Inventory (PRI) System Upgrade

September 23rd, 2015

On Monday, Sept. 28 the Paper Records Inventory application — which supports records storage, retrieval and return of inactive paper records to off-site storage — will be on a new user-friendly interface.

All data and records will be migrated to the new system. Some improvements include advanced search for storage request and box searches. There is also a new “my submissions” feature, which displays all the requests that you have created in the system.

For help using the application, please call the JPL Records help desk at ext. 4-5469 or visit the Records Management page.

For technical assistance, contact the JPL IT service desk: 4-HELP.
