Annual Report 2011: Major Activities in Processing of the University Archives

As a continuation of our series on our 2011 Annual Report, please see a description of our major activities in the processing of the University Archives:

  • University Archives processing had a strong year due to the hiring of Christie Peterson as University Archives Project Archivist. Since her start in mid-September 2010,Peterson has surveyed all University Archives collections, and formulated a processing plan to ensure that all finding aids for University Archives collections larger than 2 linear feet will include inventories by the end of 2012.
  • Major collections and groups of collections addressed in 2010 include additions to the theater collections, eating club records, and oversize material. A total of 69 collections and 811 linear feet were addressed in some form in FY2011.
Stay tuned for further discussion of our 2011 work involving accessioning, digital projects, records management, collection development, exhibitions, and more.
