The items in the Archives and Special Collections are arranged in groups by format to facilitate storage. There are series of documents, audio and video materials, photographs, books, and memorabilia. We are in the process of using Archon to create a database which will list items that are not currently searchable in the Rhodes College Online Catalog. Until this database is available, the card file and Microsoft Excel lists located in the Archives will continue to serve as the Collections’ primary finding aids.
