Please see “Reproductions and Use” on the Digital Collections and Archives website for more information about reproductions and permission to publish.

The collection is organized into six series: Subject files; Courses and workshops; Project applications, reviews, and reports; Publications; Conferences and seminars; and Unprocessed accessions.
Developed by Jean Mayer in 1984, the Center for Environmental Management is an independent center concerned with the problems of hazardous and solid wastes and toxic substances.
Processing Notes: 26 boxes of material were processed by Jean Slavkovsky, a 438 intern, spring 2009, supervised by Susanne Belovari. The collection was the product of a much larger accession, which the records manager divided into four or five different UA collections upon arrival at DCA. As a result, remaining CEM material were remnants and decontextualized sub-groupings of material. Original order was impossible to determine and material was subdivided into 5 series (see series notes). Duplicates were weeded when found; material was reboxed. To maintain meaningful sub-groupings (e.g. NEEC conference) original folder titles were prefaced with the name of the sub-group (e.g. NEEC). A few rusty paper clips were replaced. In-depth research was carried out about the three boxes of HRI reports and we determined these to be secondary reports easily available elsewhere. The reports have been offered to Tisch College and/or David Gute and will be deaccessioned and destroyed if not wanted by either.
