Unit Publications [subseries]:

The Unit Publications subseries includes annual reports, bibliographies, brochures, histories, lectures, newsletters, and reports.

Under annual reports the researcher will find the Annual Report to the President for the years from 1950/1951 to 1966/1967. During this time the unit reports were edited, so the annual reports found in this publications group may differ significantly from the annual report published in the President's Report . From 1967/1968 the President's Report published the unit annual reports as sent. However, the 1973/1974 Annual Report of ISR is also very different from the one found in the President's Report . The 1984/1985 Annual Report of ISR was maintained because the President's Report ceased publication in 1984. Reports that cover a span of twenty years or more have been included in the annual reports because the majority of the publications focus on the year when the publication was written. The annual reports are arranged chronologically by date of the report.

In addition, there are several bibliographies or book catalogs which provide an extensive list of all the publications published since the founding of the Institute in 1946 until approximately 1987. These are arranged alphabetically by title of the bibliography. This subseries also includes brochures announcing the availability of various ISR publications. They are arranged alphabetically by title of publication.

There are five histories available with the most recent published in 1966. The lectures are a compilation of papers presented by the staff of ISR at the 1949 meeting in Denver, Colorado, of the American Psychological Association.

Several newsletter titles are included in this publications subseries. Driving Development Newsletter was produced in 1970. Open Channel issued from 1969 through 1973, was the predecessor of FYI. FYI was printed from 1975 to 1991 and served as the unit newsletter. Freestyle circulated from 1978-1980 and functioned as a newsletter for the national test sites. The ISR Newsletter was published from 1966 to 1992 and functioned as an outreach publication. In 1994 it was issued as volume 18 under the new title Profiles: The ISR Newsletter . It ceased publication in 1995. The ISR Sampler is an annual newsletter that began publication in 2000.

There are several reports arranged alphabetically by title in this subseries. The bulk of the reports were issued from the mid-1980s to the present. Most of the reports are about the University of Michigan campus and specific departments. Of special note is the study Perceptions of Safety and Security at the University of Michigan which includes the report to the Task Force on Campus Security and Safety and also the summary report, technical report, questionnaire, codebook, and breakdown of responses by occupation, sex, and race of respondent.
