Subseries 8G, Digital Records of Dean William B. Russel, 2002 June 19-2014 March 27
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
The Digital Records of Dean William B. Russel subseries contains digital folders and digital files created and used on Dean Russel's desktop computer. The predominant record types include outgoing correspondence, memos, spreadsheets, meeting agendas and minutes, and budgets. Categories well represented in the subseries include admissions and readmissions, student and alumni affairs, diversity, academic affairs, office and university administration, placement rates of graduates, and finances. More than half of the digital files are Microsoft Word documents and roughly a one-third of the digital files are a mixture of PDF's and Excel spreadsheets. The subseries will be useful for its comprehensive documentation of the functional areas of the Graduate School during Russel's tenure as well as the School's growing efforts to enhance diversity initiatives, quantify the placement of its graduates, and solidify its alumni base.
Folders are maintained in their original order as when transferred to the archives. No arrangement has been imposed on them.
Appraisal was conducted in accordance with University Archives procedures.
