Administrative history

The TWU Archives was informally established in 1982, on the strength of grant funding acquired by Library Director David Twiest, who began to accummulate school records, as well as the archival records of Robert N. Thompson; in 1982-1983 he hired a contract archivist to begin to manage these materials.

For some years, very little work was accomplished, owing to a lack of funding.
In 1988, Ted Goshulak accepted the position of reference librarian; his responsibilities included general oversight of the archives department, which was by now established as part of the library.
In 1994 Sylvia Stopforth was hired to work on a part-time basis as reference librarian and archivist. Between 1995 and 2003, Stopforth successfully applied for over $33,000 in provincial and federal grant funding, which was applied to salaries, shelving, supplies, and computer hardware and software. Student assistants were hired with funding from the Work Studies Program, a provincial program that was cut ca. 2002.

Arrangement


  • Audio cassettes were separated into two sub-series (Speakers and Events) and were arranged in alphabetical order by title within each series up to April 2005; after this date, audio cassettes were filed in order of accession, and in 2012 the sub-series were decomissioned as the categories were deemed unhelpful and difficult to differentiate
  • Video cassettes were arranged in alphabetical order by title up to April 2005; after this date, video cassettes were filed in order of accession

Finding aids


  • Brief descriptions of audio and video cassettes have been entered into the archives database, accessible online
  • In 2010/2011 a project was undertaken to provide content notes for the newly digitized audio cassette collection; these were added to the brief descriptions, and are accessible online
  • Transcripts exist for some audio recordings; these are filed in Fonds 41 in hard copy, while PDF copies have been linked to their respective recordings

Accruals

More accruals to this collection are expected

General note

Title information is taken from the cassette labels, and is often very limited - particularly with respect to the video cassettes - as archival staff have not had the opportunity to view the majority of these materials

General note

Video cassettes are stored in filing cabinets (repurposed microfilm cabinets); audio cassettes are stored in boxes on B 4 S 1 and B 5 S 1

General note

Note that there are four boxes of non-standard format, unprocessed audio and video cassettes stored in Bay 24
