Language of Materials




The University Archives are arranged in classes in common with other materials housed in the University Library. The classes comprise distinct bodies of records, or fonds to use archival parlance, in many cases, chiefly in the records of departments and faculties. However, they have also been assigned to records with the same diplomatic form, such as plans or minute books, or to records relating to the same subject, such as University relations with the town, regardless of provenance. To ease navigation and browsing of the classes on Janus, they have been grouped by function into 6 categories: corporate management; teaching, learning and research; assets; judicial administration; student administration and research; external relations.
