Organized by topics and subtopics, after the pattern of the University Archives file cabinets.
In 2003, the College of Continuing Studies was subsumed into the College of Public Affairs and Community Service. During or soon after 2003, staff were moved into new offices. Lacking the space to retain their files, CCS transferred their records to the University Archives.
