Under the order of General Circular Letter no. 23/1972 from the Prime Minister’s Office, ITM’s Archives Unit was established and put under the responsibility of the Registrar Office to uphold large collections of Institutional Records in the early of 1982. However, until 1984, ITM has yet to comply with systematic record management requirements.

Records and Archives Unit was established only in January of 1986, where it implemented its functions by focusing on two (2) main tasks such as File System Coordination and Implementing Valueless Document Disposal to reduce storage space in record stores. At that time ITM was already 30 years old with nine (9) branch campuses.

This unit was originally located at level 1 ITM Director's Office Building which is now known as Galeri Seni Tuanku Nur Zahirah (GESTURZ). In September 1997, this unit later moved to a new space in Dewan Sri Budiman which was once the ITM Central Store. In 2000, following the university's restructuring, the role and function of the archive was expanded to Archives and Museum Division.

On April 17, 2003, Dato’ Seri Prof. Dr. Ibrahim Abu Shah, UiTM Vice-Chancellor, has declared the opening of the Archives and Museum Division at Dewan Sri Budiman, Universiti Teknologi MARA Shah Alam. His intention to build UiTM Museum and Gallery became a reality when it was launched by Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib Tun Hj. Abdul Razak, the Deputy Prime Minister on 10 November 2006.

In early 2015, the Registrar's Office had restructured the department and Archives Division was placed under the responsibility of Perpustakaan Tun Abdul Razak (PTAR). This was decided at Executive Committee Meeting (JKE) No. 06/2015 on June 10, 2015. This responsibility involves the entire operation of the Archives Division and the resources of social schemes (Grade S) effective 01 June 2015. Under the management of PTAR, the Archives Division was restructured according to departmental functions and is simply known as Jabatan Arkib Universiti (University Archives Department).

The purpose of the Jabatan Arkib Universiti is to coordinate UiTM Records Management System and Archives.



  1. To coordinate the university's record management system.
  2. As a university records management reference centre.
