|Jambar Records -- Scope and Content|
Many of the materials in the collection were originally housed in three-ring binders. For preservation purposes, all materials were removed from the binders, and negatives (Series I) were separated from proof sheets (Series II) and photographs (Series III). Printed materials, such as style books and advertising rate cards, are in Series IV. Series V contains handwritten notes and identification items, which were originally found in the three-ring binders. The bulk of the first five series covers the years 1987 to 1995. Original order and organization were maintained whenever possible. Archival appraisal principles were applied to water damaged negatives.
Series VI contains the master negatives of all microfilmed Jambar newspapers. This is a complete run of the paper, beginning in 1931. This series will continue to expand as additional papers are microfilmed. The master negatives are preservation copies and should not be used for access. The duplicates (access copies) are housed in Maag Library's microforms area. Series VII is printed newspapers, which were collected by the reference department and by archives staff. For additional printed copies, see the Jambar bound volumes in Special Collections. Series VIII is digital scans (TIFFS) saved on CDs. The scanned images cover newspapers from 2000 to 2006.
