Immediate Source of Acquisition

Based on the contents of Box 1 Folder 9 it appears the course syllabi may have started to be sent to Fogler Library as a result of a memorandum from James C. MacCampbell, Director of University of Maine Libraries to faculty requesting copies of the syllabi for Fogler's collection.


Only a selection of syllabi will be transferred to special collections in the future, those from when courses were first introduced, and those that reflect significant changes to the curriculum.

Processing Information

Processed by Matthew Revitt and student worker Abigayl Novak March - April 2018, Raymond H. Fogler Library Special Collections Department. Processing involved a collection survey and the creation of this finding aid. Material was rehoused in appropriate archival folders and the boxes and folders numbered and titled added using information from ArchivesSpace. The material was originally housed across 12 boxes to separate the material alphabetically, but the processing archivist felt space savings could be made by consolidating the material into 4 boxes, while still retaining the original department order.
