About

The classification scheme was updated in July of 2022 by Madeleine Schense. A copy of the original classification scheme created by Bruce Miracle can be found here. The classification scheme is broken down as follows:

Record Group: General topic

Subgroup: More specific topic

Collection: Collection of material related to the subgroup

Example:

0 Union College – History and General Information

0.1 General Information

0.1.1 Union College Fact Book


A finding aid is available for all collections and includes the record group, subgroup, collection, location of the collection, processing information, note explaining the history of an organization or the biography of an individual, and a detailed description of the collection. The finding aid will also list if the collection has any viewing restrictions.


To set up a time to view materials, please email Madeleine Schense at mschense@unionky.edu with available dates, times, and the materials you would like to view. Please include the record group and/or collection in your inquiry.
