9 This figure represents our entire University Archives holdings. It consists primarily of archival records and manuscripts but it also
includes substantial quantities of printed, microfilm, artifact, audio, visual, film, graphic, and digital materials. Our holdings are
organized according to the archival principle of provenance. Our controls over our records are therefore primarily oriented towards
the creator of the records and only secondarily on the particular types of materials.
