IEEE Merger Collection: General Notes

Conducted by George Carlyle Sell, Grad. Student

Department of History and Sociology of Science University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19174 Autumn, 1978

NOTE TO USERS OF THIS FINDING-AID:

This comprehensive list of finding-aids to nearly six hundred documents relating to the history of the IEEE, is designed for efficient access by users of these archives. A name and subject index following this list, is keyed to the finding-aids list. In that the finding-aids list is symmetrical with the organization of the archives, the index is, therefore, an index to the archival materials themselves.

The finding-aids list (and the archival materials, accordingly) is organized into eleven categories and fifty-nine subcategorizes. The numbering system is designed to reveal at a glance, the category and sub category, as well as the individual item number, for each document. The three part number designation for a document will have three number groups. For example, if a document is identified by the number 5.26.300,- the left-hand number group, 5, indicates the category, "Technical Operations and Meetings." The middle number group, 26, indicate the sub category, "Technical Group Structure - Organization Plans." The right-hand number group, 300, indicates the individual document number which is consecutive with other individual documents in the finding-aids list.

The index will refer the user to documents pertaining to the name or subject indexed. Documents will be referenced by individual document numbers only (i.e., the right-hand number group) unless an entire category or sub category is referenced, in which case the three part number will be indicated with the right-hand number group as zero (for example, 5.26.0). The finding aid table of contents shows the range of document numbers contained within each category in order to make easier locating any particular document by its document number.

The three part number system is also designed to provide effortless returning of documents to their proper order in the organized archive after use.

Subsequently added documents can either be placed in the appropriate location in the archives and given the three part number designation of the previous item with the addition of a letter (for example 5.26.300a), or a separate category can be created at the end of the present archival arrangement.
