One preservation method for caring for paper records is to folder meterials materials in acid free folders.  Acidic paper can "burn" or discolor other paper.  Acid free folders prevent this by removing the materials from potentially damaging folders, but they can also neutralize the acidity of the paper records.  We also refolder archival materials so that we can properly label them to increase access and security.

In the President's Office these records, many folder titles will begin with a "sort phrase" that groups like materials together.  See in the example above the preceeding sort phrase, University Relations.  If the folder that you are working with does not have a sort phrase and does not fit with the neighboring folders, please ask Jeff or Lindsey for guidance. Please alphabetize the folders within a sort phrase.
