The Inventory of Federal Archives in the States is one of the products—of—the work of the Survey of Federal Archives, which operated as a nation—wide project of the Works Progress Adndnis- tration from January l, 1956 to June 50, 1957, and has been con- tinued in Kentucky since that date as a state project of that Administration. The plan for the organization of the Inventory is as follows: Series I consists of reports on the administration of the Survey, acknowledgments, and general discussions of the location, condi- tion, and content of federal archives in the states. Succeeding series contain the detailed infomnation secured by workers of the Survey, in inventory form, a separate series number being assigned to each of the executive departments (except the Department of State) and other major units of the Federal Government. Within each series Ho. l is a general introduction to the field organiza- tion and records of the governmental agency concerned; the suc- ceeding numbers contain the inventory proper, separate numbers being assigned to each state in alphabetical order. Thus, in each series, the inventory for Alabama is No. 2, that for Arizona Ho. 3, that for Arkansas No. 4, etc. For each local office information regarding each series, or unit of related records, is presented in the follotdng order: title, inclusive dates ("to date" indicating an open filo at the time the information was secured), general description of informational con- tent, description of the system of filing or indexing (if any), a statement of frequency and purpose of uso, form of the record it- self {bound volumes, shoots in folders, etc.), linear footage, do- scription of the containers, physical condition of the records (not stated if satisfactory), location by room number or other identifying information, and finally, the number of the worm BGSA on which this information was originally recorded by a Survey worker and from which it rms abstracted for the Inventory.
