Statement on Harmful Materials: Materials and records in the Special Collections & Archives are historical in nature and reflect the society in which they were produced. As such, they may contain stereotypes, such as those related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, and other language and imagery that are inappropriate by today's standards. These materials and records are retained in order to fully represent the historical record and are presented in their original format, without context, for research in person or through online access. These materials and records are made accessible without endorsing any historical viewpoints. The McGoogan Library’s Special Collection & Archives is guided by the library’s mission and by the core values of the Society of American Archivists.
