Organization and Description of Materials

The College Archives is organized by college department, unit, etc, and then by type or nature of material. Each major division has a record group number (CA##), while subdivisions are given a subgroup number(.##).  The following listing represents the intellectual arrangement of the Archives. All collections with records have a link to their online inventory, except those marked “[forthcoming].” Departments/units with no records in the Archives are listed without a link or the “[forthcoming]” tag.  Not all processed record groups are available for research because of access restrictions; see individual descriptions for more information.
