UH Libraries Records

Identifier: 1996-006

The collection is arranged alphabetically, based primarily on how it was originally received in 1972 and 1973. For preservation and access reasons the collection has been re-boxed and re-foldered. New folder titles conform, as closely as possible, to original folder titles, except when the original was obviously incomplete, incorrect, or confusing. Original folder and item order has been maintained whenever possible. Exceptions were made when folders were misfiled or when no order was apparent.

The University Libraries Records are the records generated during the tenure of several directors at the University of Houston Libraries. The materials in the collection date from the 1930s to 2004, with the bulk of the materials dating from the 1960s through the 1990s. Included in the collection are university-related correspondence, minutes, agendas, reports, financial reports, bids, and contracts. All folder titles use the headings provided by their originator.

Series 15 contains digital archival materials acquired in 2014-2015.
