Information included in the Content Description note and Collection Contents section is drawn from information supplied with the collection and from an initial survey of the contents. Folder titles appearing in the contents list below are often based on those provided by the creator or previous custodian. Titles have not been verified against the contents of the folders in all cases. Otherwise, folder titles are supplied by staff during initial processing.
Collections are processed to a variety of levels, depending on the work necessary to make them usable, their perceived research value, the availability of staff, competing priorities, and whether or not further accruals are expected. The library attempts to provide a basic level of preservation and access for all collections, and does more extensive processing of higher priority collections as time and resources permit.
In 2015, the collection received a baseline level of processing, including rehousing and minimal organization. The collection was reclassed under a new call number, and containers were renumbered.
In 2019, an addition of materials in the Thomas E. Marston papers series received a basic level of processing, including rehousing and minimal organization.
This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection and/or revisions in arrangement and description.
