Synopsis: A study of the functions of colleges and universities, Varsity Letters is intended to aid those responsible for the documentation of these institutions. The seven functions examined are: to confer credentials, convey knowledge, foster socialization, conduct research, sustain the institution, provide public service, and promote culture. The functional approach provides the means to achieve a comprehensive understanding of an institution and its documentation: a knowledge of what is to be documented and the problems of gathering the desired documentation. Samuels offers specific advice about the records of modern colleges and universities and proposes a method to ensure their adequate documentation. She also offers a method to analyze and plan the preservation of records for any type of institution.
About the Author: Helen W. Samuels has been Institute Archivist and Head of Special Collections in the MIT Libraries since 1977 and has previously worked as both an archivist and a librarian. Her publications focus on the documentation of science and technology and the methods, such as documentation strategies, that can be used to improve the record of modern society. She is a Fellow of the Society of American Archivists.
