Title: The collecting of archival materials at Cornell University
Author(s): Fox, Edith M.
Subject(s): Archives Cornell University
Abstract: Cornell University was among the pioneers in the development of a university archives and a regional history collection. The physical results of that endeavor are at times so annoyingly apparent in expanding stacks and worrisome storage places as to obscure the research values of the bulky records that cause the trouble. In contrast, the books and articles which have been wholly or partially based on these materials take little room, although a surprisingly large number of them are scattered through any major library.
