§ 248. Manuscript and records "on file". Manuscript or printed papers
of the legislature, usually termed "on file, " and which shall have been
on file more than five years in custody of the senate and assembly
clerks, and all public records of the state not placed in other custody
by a specific law shall be part of the state library and shall be kept
in rooms assigned and suitably arranged for that purpose by the trustees
of public buildings. The regents shall cause such papers and records to
be so classified and arranged that they can be easily found. No paper
or record shall be removed from such files except on a resolution of the
senate and assembly withdrawing them for a temporary purpose, and in
case of such removal a description of the paper or record and the name
of the person removing the same shall be entered in a book provided for
that purpose, with the date of its delivery and return.
