This collection is arranged chronologically.

Scope and Content

This small collection came from Marshall's office upon her retirement and largely reflects the activities of her department during her time at UNI. A few outlier documents from the 1960s and 1980s predate her time at UNI.

Types of materials included are memoranda, correspondence, notes, drafts, meeting agendas and minutes, and policies, some of which contain handwritten annotations. None of the materials seem to be written by Marshall, with the majority being created by various library faculty and staff. A variety of subjects are represented in the collection such as: reference desk scheduling and its policies and procedures; Interlibrary Loan discussions; library technology and websites; and many discussion documents focused on the "Rethinking Reference / Informational and Instructional Services Initiative."
