Topics documented include goals and objectives; meetings within the University relating to the delivery of the department's services; reorganization of the department; and a Gallup Poll to ascertain SFU's public image and develop an appropriate public relations program. Records include correspondence, reports, minutes, working papers, proposals, and other documents.


Series comprises correspondence conducted by the Media and Public Relations office related to its mandate and functions. Activities documented include liaison with the media (press, radio and television), liaison with University officials and other departments, production of publications (Takkali, Simon Fraser Week, Research Directory), production and distribution of University Christmas Cards, and the administration of the Speakers' Bureau.


Two early issues of Takkali were distributed in 1965 before the university opened and were described as a "report to convocation." In 1968, the Information Office used the same name, Takkali, for a new monthly bulletin to faculty and staff about Board of Governors and Senate activities. In addition to official announcements, Takkali contained news of scholarly and academic activities such as appointments, and promotions, awarding of tenure, resignations, publications, papers presented at conferences, and research grants received. "Takkali" was one of the early names for the Carrier Indians with whom explorer Simon Fraser wintered on Fraser Lake. The word was also translated as "Navigator." The final three issues of Takkali were not distributed independently, but appeared as inserts in The Peak in September, October and November of 1974.


The Information Office published Comment twice a semester as a feature magazine about members of the SFU community. It was mailed to the homes of all students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the public who asked to be on the mailing list. Comment ceased publication in 1981.
