Records, 1925-1971.

The administrative records of the Office of University Librarian during the tenure of Donald F. Cameron consists of annual reports, meeting minutes, and correspondence of a professional and, less often, personal nature. The annual reports series provides a yearly progress report on library activity. Financial matters are contained in the series on budgets and financial records. One can view the day-to-day activities of the University Librarian through the general correspondence files, which are arranged alphabetically by sender or recipient of each letter. The bulk of the records are contained in the subject files. Within these files is documentation of Cameron's leadership of the Rutgers library system. Included are topics both internal to the operations of gthe library and external subjects that concerned Cameron, including professional organizations, associations and committees in which he participated. The records also contain extensive documentation on library construction on the New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden campuses of Rutgers. The final series documents Cameron involvement in the origins and development of the Rutgers University Press and Press Council.
