Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


This series brings together paper and born-digital records that were stored loose without any obvious connection to adjacent files or materials. Paper records were arranged into four files by the archivist according to media distribution type. Born-digital records were arranged together into a single file.

Paper and analogue records were arranged by the archivist in August 2022. A second accrual of born-digital records were arranged by the archivist in February 2023. Due to the time lapse between these two accruals, paper and analogue files were arranged first in the file list in chronological order according to earliest date, followed by the born-digital file.
