Collection History

Processing Notes

This collection was processed during the summer of 2013 by Devika de Puy Kamp, a Fletcher student and supervised by Erin Faulder, Archivist for Digital Collections. Whenever possible, the material is described in its original order. Due to the nature of born-digital materials, original order was perceived to be alphabetical by file name. Where possible titles were taken from the original document. Every effort was made to represent the original file structure within the description. Where necessary, some file structures were collapsed for descriptive simplicity. The original file path and file name is recorded within each item's record.

In January-February 2015, Tim Walsh (DCA Archives and Research Assistant) generated checksums for all digital objects in this collection; performed QA work on digital object metadata; and created PDF/A preservation copies of 449 word processing files, Powerpoint files, and other textual objects in the collection. One file, MS205.004.00287.doc, was found to be corrupted. No preservation copy of this object was made.

This collection is processed, but some materials may be restricted and not available for research
