Immediate Source of Acquisition
In order to facilitate access, the collection was minimally processed. Most dates are approximate. Materials were rehoused in new folders and removed from binders. The original labeling (but not necessarily original order) of files and binders was maintained during rehousing. The materials were originally housed in boxes that were labeled with broad topical titles (e.g., academic programs and policies, faculty-related files, binders), and these groupings were used in part when organizing the materials into series. For ease of access, subject files have been arranged alphabetcally. In some cases, the contents of individual files have been divided into a number of sub-files, based on content; many of the files contained unrelated or loosely related materials.
