WSSU Archives Website Updated

Over the past couple of months there have been several changes that occurred to the WSSU Archives Homepage.  I welcome you to visit the new website and encourage any suggestions for it.  WSSU Archives

The biggest change was to the Manuscript Collection.  The new title of the link is University Records & Manuscript Collection.  The Archives holdings are divided into three headings: University Records, Manuscript Collections, and Photograph Collections.  Each of the three sections contains some updated finding aids or new collections that were recently processed.  Below are a list of the most recent updates.

University Records:
RG 1.2 - Simon G. Atkins Collection  Although the finding aid is the same, it is the first use of Archivists' Toolkit by the WSSU Archives.  We are continuing to populate Archivists' Toolkit and look to move as many of our finding aids over to the software.

RG 1.2 - Francis L. Atkins Collection

Manuscript Collections:
MC 2 - C.E. Gaines/Clint Johnson Collection  This collection contains material related to their work on the book "They Call me Big House"

Photograph Collections:
Two different photograph collections were created.  One contains photographs related to the coaching and athletic directing career of C.E. Gaines.  The second one contains general photographs of the and for WSSU.
RG 8.1 - C.E. Gaines Photograph Collection
RG 8.2 - General Photograph Collection
