Record Groups

Records held within the College Archives loosely follow the administrative hierarchy of the college and are organized by the office that created the material. These numbers keep all the records produced by each campus unit together for easier retrieval of important information.

As example, Schools of the College is record group 8 and the School of Media Arts is record group 8.03. Sub record group numbers represent each academic program the School of Media Arts offers: Audio Arts + Acoustics (rg 8.03.01), Film & Video (8.03.02), Interactive Arts and Media (8.03.03), etc.
