d) The Commission shall determine what public records have no administrative, legal, research or historical value and should be destroyed or otherwise disposed of and shall authorize destruction or other disposal thereof. The State archivist may deposit them in the State library or State historical museum or with a historical society, museum or library. (Ill. Rev. Stat., 1985, ch. 116, pars. 43.110 and 43.107)
e) Except as otherwise provided by law, no public record shall be disposed of by any officer or agency unless written approval of the Local Records Commission is first obtained. (Ill. Rev. Stat., 1985, ch. 116, par. 43.107)
