Volume:21.75 cubic feet

The materials in this series are arranged alphabetically by topic and then chronologically within those topics where appropriate.

Included in this series are Library executive summaries (the production of which was discontinued in 1985) and annual reports, Library budgets, the records of Library committees and associations, the records of University committees and groups, Library guides and handbooks (including the New Faculty Guide), memoranda from the Dean of Libraries, Library newsletters, and subject files related to both the Library and the University.

The Library committees and associations include: the Library Administrative Group, the Assistant Librarians Group, the Library Automation Committee, the Library Exhibits Committee, the Joint Committee, the Library Advisory Committee, the Northeastern University Librarians Association, the Northeastern University Libraries Support Staff Association, the Northeastern University Staff Librarians Association, the Library Staff Development Committee, and the University Library Operations Committee. Of particular note are the records of the University Library Planning Committee, which was responsible for the planning and building of a new library building, Snell Library (see also the "Snell Library Building" Subject File).

The University committees and groups include: the Academic Computing Advisory Committee, the Ad Hoc Committee on Affirmative Action, the Deans' Council, the Faculty Senate, the Technology Council, the Telecommunications Advisory Committee, the NUnet Library Resources Task Force, the University Council, and the University Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.

Arranged chronologically, the memoranda from the Dean's Office document security and operational procedures, storage issues, workshops or conferences held at the Library or given by the Library staff, and maintenance issues.

The collection contains eleven newsletters published by the library, including: "@ NU Libraries Faculty Newsletter" (2002-2004), "The Artful Dodger" (1976), "Computer Search Services" (1980-1986), "Cross Reference" (1969, 1971-1984), "The Flag" (2001-2006), and "Library Links" (1993-1997).

Of particular note in this series are the subject files which cover topics such as automation, and includes lists of Northeastern faculty publications from 1965 and 1969, strategic planning materials from the early 1990s as well as the late 1990s, information about NU's accreditation and reaccreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), a proposal for the construction of Snell Library, and extensive information about the selection of an integrated library system.

3. "Meet the Author" Events, 2004-2010
Volume:1.7 cubic feet

This series is arranged alphabetically by author's last name.

This series includes audio and video recordings of the "Meet the Author" events organized by the Library's Advancement and Marketing Department in which authors of recent, noteworthy books of all genres give readings and discuss their works, including events featuring Geraldine Brooks, Charles Enderlin, Vincent Lam, John Grogan, and NU Professors Winifred Breines, Gary Goshgarian, William Miles, and Leonard Brown, and many others.

Many of the author talks are available on the Northeastern University YouTube channel and on iTunes U. Most events have been filmed and are available as a MiniDVs, and for some events there are also other materials, such as advertising materials (posters, television commercials), audio recordings, or slides from the author's presentation; there are a few exceptions for which there are only posters. Additional copies of the videos are available on the Advancement and Marketing Department's Programming and Communications Committee File Backup DVDs (see Series 4).
