Office files  1904-2001 [series]

The Office Files series constitute the central file of the School of Information. It includes internal administrative correspondence, correspondence with the university's central administration and other academic departments and with professional organizations, other library schools, foundations and accrediting agencies. The organization of the files into chronological subseries reflects the way in which the files were transferred to the archives, or in some instances, changes in school administration. There is some overlap in time span of the subseries and some continuity of files between subseries. Each of the subseries is arranged in a single alphabetical sequence

 
 1904-1964 [subseries]

The Office Files, 1904-1964 subseries (9.5 linear feet) is composed of the records of library education at the University of Michigan beginning in 1904. There are two reasons for the choice of 1964 as a dividing date. In 1964, Rudolph Gjelsness left the department after 24 years as its chairman. Secondly, the 1960s were a time of tremendous growth and change in the program, with its eventual elevation to a separate school in 1969.

The 1904-1964 series is arranged alphabetically. It is largely composed of administrative correspondence. The primary correspondents are other libraries and library schools, library organizations, foundations, and other units within the university. Intra-university correspondence is located under the heading, "Michigan University." All correspondence with other library schools is located in "Library Schools." In particular, correspondence with the University of Illinois (1911-1964) and Columbia University (1926-1964) is rich. Other correspondence is scattered according to the name of the institution (i.e., American Library Association, Carnegie Endowment, and Moscow All-Union Lenin Library).

Several files related to curriculum are also rich. "Curriculum Revisions and Discussions" includes documentation of the major curriculum revision of 1948. Course material is extensive and is found in three files: "Summer Sessions," "Course Material," and "Workshops." There are several folders, including correspondence, on the first formal summer session in 1909. Also of special interest are the fourteen folders of material from Bishop's seminar, L.S. 209.

In addition, there is correspondence of individual faculty or administrators. The correspondence of Margaret Mann and Mary Parsons, both faculty members, is extensive. William Warner Bishop and Rudolph Gjelsness also have separate listings. However, their correspondence as department chairmen is scattered throughout the series.

Other important files are Budgets (1941-1964), Faculty Meeting Minutes (1927-1964), and Annual Reports Material (1905-1916; 1932).

 1964-1984 [subseries]

The Office Files, 1964-1984 subseries (9 linear feet) is composed of the records of the school from 1964 through 1984, though there is very little material from Wallace Bonk's time as chairman (1964-1967). The subseries encompasses the school's administration and operation and has several interesting files.

Accreditation relates to the school's reaccreditation in 1974 by the American Library Association Committee on Accreditation (COA). Prior to the COA site visit, the school undertook a self-study and submitted its report to the COA. Most of the materials relate to this self-study process. Overseen by a steering committee, chaired by Rosemary Magrill, the self-study was made up of six subcommittees: Faculty; Governance, Administration, and Financial Support; Physical Resources and Facilities; Program Goals and Objectives; Questionnaires; and Students. Each committee was made up of faculty, student, and alumni representatives. Correspondence and the final COA report are also included. The material provides detailed insight into all aspects of the school's operation.

Affirmative Action contains correspondence and reports regarding the School of Library Science's efforts to meet the university's 1969 commitment to ten percent minority enrollment. There are also materials on the Black Action Movement and on an allegedly racist film ("The Speaker") purchased by the school. Alumnus-in-Residence refers to an annual program, begun in 1969, which brought distinguished alumni to the university for discussion with students about current issues in librarianship. Included in this file are programs, correspondence, and memos.

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (C.I.C.) contains correspondence regarding the development and operation of a joint doctoral program in library science. Course Material is limited for this series, with material for only three classes. Only L.S. 813, Bidlack's Trends and Issues seminar, is extensively represented. The Knapp Project contains materials about the school's experimental program in school library management from 1971 to 1974. Types of materials include grant proposals, budgets, correspondence, committee meeting notes, research data, and the interim and final reports.

An especially useful file is School Status. It includes materials relating to the Regents' 1968 decision to make the Department of Library Science into a separate school. Included is Bonk's 1964 statement to Dean Haber requesting school status, and correspondence from 1963 to 1972. The largest part of the file relates to the 1967 visit by a panel of library leaders. There are numerous documents on various aspects of the department's operation.

In the subseries, there are several file headings which require little description. Among these are Budgets, Faculty Minutes, and Workshops, for which there are also records in the 1904-1964 subseries. Both the Curriculum Committee and the Long-Range Planning Committee files are composed of minutes, memos, notes, and correspondence of the committees. In later accessions, Faculty Minutes are treated as a distinct series.

 1930-1994 [subseries]

The Office Files, 1930-1994 subseries (9.5 linear feet) is arranged alphabetically by folder heading and then chronologically. The records in this series reflect the activities of the school. Many of the files continue previous subjects and complement the records in earlier accessions. The Accreditation files continue from the previous accession. These files provide information on the activities of the school, the curriculum, and the faculty from year to year.

The Council on Library Resources (CLR) files and the Title II B files both provide information on two programs for educating and training future librarians. The CLR program focused specifically on coursework and training for students that would provide them with the background necessary for working in a college or research library. The Title II B program provided opportunities for training for minority students.

The Curriculum files provide information on the courses being taught at the school and requirements for certain specialties. Types of materials found in these files include course descriptions, syllabi, and course materials, such as assignments and handouts. Also included in these files are materials on the curriculum for a School Library Media Specialist concentration. The Statistics files provide information on students, faculty and the school itself. Much of the information in these files complements that found in Dean Bidlack's files.
