      At both Reese Library's Special Collections and Institutional Archives and at and Greenblatt Library's Historical Collections and Archives, the records of the University are arranged by "record groups." This allows us to group similar records together, and to highlight sub groups within our larger record groups. Each record group is assigned a prefix, and a set of numbers.
