History of Xavier University Schedule of Classes collection

This collection entails those Xavier University Schedule of Classes held by Xavier University Archives.The earliest issue in this collection dates from 1959. This archival collection, though substantial, is not complete.

From at least 1974 to 1989, four different schedules of classes were published each semester for the various academic divisions of the University. All undergraduate courses, day and evening, appeared in one publication produced by the Office of the Registrar. The College of Continuing Education, later called the Center for Adult and Part-Time Students, published its own Schedule of Classes, though its courses were also listed in the Registrar's brochure. The Graduate School (Programs) published its bulletin of courses. Similarly, the Master of Business Program had its own printed schedule.

However, beginning with the Fall Semester 1989, just one Schedule of Classes was published each semester in a newspaper format for all courses (graduate, undergraduate, day and evening). There was one exception: courses in the Weekend Program, which began in 1995, were usually not included in this Schedule of Classes, but were published separately.

Summer courses were always published in a separate bulletin which included all summer classes, graduate, undergraduate, day and evening.

Beginning the the Fall of 2009, the Semester Schedule of Classes no longer appeared in printed form. It was available only online. However, the Summer Sessions continued to publish its class schedule in a paper format as in the past.

Processing Information

This collection was reprocessed into its current arrangement and description as part of a major University Archives reprocessing project that began in 2012-2013. This reprocessing project was largely an effort to disband a record group system, developed in the late 1970s, used to arrange university records. The record group scheme had been established by the first University Archivist, Lee Bennish, SJ, and chiefly organized materials by originating office and organizational structure. After Bennish’s tenure, oversight of the archives changed several times and resulted in a lack of adherence to the record group scheme for new acquisitions. The 2012-2013 processing project also sought to incorporate records for which little acquisition or contextual information existed. The project staff primarily reorganized records into subject-based collections. Occasionally subjects coincided with offices of origin (e.g. Subject, Presidents; Office, Office of the President; Collection, Xavier University President’s Office). This subject-based arrangement makes it difficult to identify or describe the collections by office of origin but administrative project records do indicate transfers and connections between original record groups and 2012-2013 collections. During the project, records were rehoused in archival folders and boxes, and new finding aids were created using the OhioLINK Finding Aid Creation Tool.

As of 2017, University Archives no longer employs the 2012-2013 system of arranging collections by subject.
