Arrangement

All efforts were made to preserve the original arrangement of the collection. Within each series, most items are arranged chronologically, when material is dated.

Materials that are not arranged chronologically are noted in the detailed series descriptions, found in the Container List.

Certain materials are also grouped by format (including Photographic Material, Video, Audio, Computer Discs, and Objects). Objects, Artworks, and artifacts were grouped together in Series X. The researcher should expect to find some overlapping of materials throughout all series.

Oversized archival materials from the various series are located in a number of oversize boxes...

The Group Material Archive is arranged in the following series:
