Processing Information

This is an artificial collection created over the course of many years in the Department of Prints, Photographs, and Architectural Collections, and has been arranged and re-arranged many times by many people. The first finding aid for the collection was created in 2006, and noted that the collection was "processed by committee." This expanded, EAD version of the finding aid was created in 2018 to improve access to this valuable resource.
