On July 1st fiscal year 2018 began, and as such, we started back at zero for a new year of accessions. As of 8/29 there were 23 new accessions of materials. This is consistent with previous years. Last year there were 25 new accessions by September 1st.
The summer months June through August are often a busy time for the archives with office/home visits and transferring materials. Here is a round up of the first 23 accessions of FY2018. Material listed here does not mean access can be granted immediately for all of it. There may be gift agreement issues in addition to the normal restrictions of 75 years (student and personnel records), 50 years (MIT Corporation and Executive Committee records), and 20 years (MIT records). Processing of the material has also not happened yet which may result in future weeding of materials. Some materials described here have not yet been added to a collection. Total cubic feet of added material is 255.
