Processing Information

The Robert Chanock Papers were rehoused from their original containers into archival containers after initial receipt from the donor. In the course of final processing several categories of material were weeded from the original accession and discarded by the processing archivist: books and reprints about viral research not authored by Chanock (books also reviewed for retention by Rare Books staff); personally identifiable information in the form of personnel records, performance reviews, and letters of recommendation relating to employees supervised by Chanock; files relating to Chanock's personal finances. Archivists augmented the original collection by conducting an Archive-It web crawl of selected websites.
