Immediate source of acquisition


The arrangement of the material into sub- and sub-sub-series is based on the original file classification system used by the creator to organize the records. Sub- and sub-sub-series are generally arranged chronologically. Files are arranged chronologically.

Note that after 1994 when the file classification system fell into disuse, the Office of the AVP Academic increasingly relied on the classification category "AVPA - general" for filing records (see series F-201-3-2-1). Accordingly these files becomes more voluminous and cover a wide spectrum of topics.
