Processing Information

Newspaper clippings have been photocopied onto acid-free paper and discarded. A scrapbook containing photographs of Ripon College's commencement in 1984 has been disbound; the pages were photocopied to preserve context. Photographs have been sleeved in Mylar.

Several oversized documents, including awards, diplomas, and posters were removed for preservation purposes. They are stored in two oversized boxes, 20 and 21, as well as two oversized folders, designated as Mapcase 7 Folders 1 and 2. These materials have also been sleeved in Mylar. Separation sheets found in relevant folders are used to remind researchers of the existence of oversize materials.
