Arrangement Note

Chronological Order by academic year.


The academic catalogs are shelved on two shelves in chronological order for each academic year. The bound copies follow the individual copies of the catalog. Two or three copies of each catalog are in the collection. There are additional catalogs available for copying and mailing to former students. These extra copies are kept in the back of the Archives with the supplies. These extra copies are also in chronological order.

Method of Acquisition

There was no provenance to this collection.  This collection was created by the Archives.  The catalogs were recovered from several unmarked boxes and anonymous donors.

Frequency of Publication

The academic catalogs are published for academic calendar years. Some catalogs may include more than one academic year, as with the first edition 1969-1971 and 2004-2006.

From 1969 until 2007, the Academic Catalog was published and printed so that students could have a physical copy. Since 2007, the Academic Catalog has been published online only. There have no hard copies of the catalog since it has been published online. The Academic Catalogs from 2007 to the present are saved on disks.

Volume and Issue Numbers

The Volume number is assigned in sequence to each year: Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3…through to the current volume. There has been only one issue for each year. The Summary has the same volume and issue number as the academic catalog for that same year.

The bound copies of the catalogs were originally kept in the Library. There are 11 bound volumes. Each volume contains more than one year of Academic Catalogs. The date range of the bound collection is 1969-2006.
