Series VII. Board Library Committee Matters (RESTRICTED IN PART), 1950-2015. 11.04 Linear feet

Scope and Contents Note

The series includes Library management's copies of Board of Trustee meeting materials, principally those of the Library Committee. The series also holds the Library's work files and other underlying material prepared in support of Board and Board Committee deliberations. As of 2017, only Library Committee reports to 1982 are open for research. See the Access Restrictions note.

Access Restrictions

Records in this series through 1982 are open to qualified researchers. In accordance with a standard NYHS restriction that Board of Trustees and Executive Office files will be closed for 35 years following the departure of a President and Chief Executive Officer, those portions of the record group dating from 1983 and later are restricted. Materials from 1983-1988 pertain to the years of Director James B. Bell's administration, so the restriction dates from the end of that period; those records will open in 2024. The records related to administrations subsequent to Bell will be opened as the 35 year restriction relevant to their tenure passes. Prior to the records being opened, they may be used only by, or with the permission of, the President and Chief Executive Officer, her designee, or in the case of this series, the Vice President and Director of the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library.
