Explanation of Manuscript Collection Designations, etc.

This is a complete list of all of the Document Groups, as well as the Collected Document Groups, in the SCPC. Some of these collections have on-line finding aids for which links are provided. Most of the rest of the Document Groups have finding aids available at the SCPC.

Document Groups (DGs) are the major manuscript collections in the SCPC's repository. Most were officially deposited by the group or person for which the DG is named.

CDGs are Collected Document Groups. The SCPC has only some material from these organizations and individuals, collected by various entities through the years. In a small number of cases, the SCPC is the official repository for a CDG, but it was not given DG status because of the limited amount of material, or because it does not reflect the donor's full activities.

CDG-As refer to groups or persons located in the United States, with CDG-Bs located in other countries. A new category, called CDG-C, was established in June 2001 to include groups that seem to have no set office location, but change their address with every new leader, or because of other circumstances do not have a clear designation as a CDG-A or CDG-B.
