Scope and Content Note

The Born digital materials series includes business and administrative records, photographs, and records related to the Boulé Journal, the offical publication for Sigma Pi Phi. Records date from 1980 to 2019. Files taken from 10 3.5" floppy disks, 82 optical discs, one Zip disk, five flash drives, and one file transfer.

Arrangement Note

Arranged into four folders: (1) File transfers, (2) Flash drives, (3) Floppy and Zip disks, and (4) Optical discs.

Restrictions on Access

Special restrictions apply: Access to processed born digital materials is only available in the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (the Rose Library). Use of the original digital media is restricted.

Processing Note

Forensic disk images were created from the floppy disks using Kryoflux, and from the optical discs, Zip disk, and flash drives using GuyMager. Individual files were extracted using FTK Imager and scanned for viruses using McAfee’s anti-virus software; none were found. Duplicate and system files have been removed, and files were scanned for personally identifiable information; none were found. Text-based files were migrated to PDF using Adobe Acrobat and image files were migrated to JPG using Microsoft Paint and GIMP. File dates have been changed from the original creation date. Access copies retain original file names. Some folder names have been changed to reflect the label on the physical label, in cases where a descriptive folder title was not already available.
