As an organization, Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America, has been creating records that document its history since its founding in 1912. Materials include extensive records of its social welfare projects in Palestine and later Israel, such as Youth Aliyah and the Hadassah Medical Organization. Hadassah's administrative records document the organization's governance, operations, and functions. The records document the organization's national presidents, executive directors, and other important individuals including Hadassah founder Henrietta Szold. They also document Hadassah's organizational activity in the United States, such as annual and midwinter conventions and the dozens of active local chapters from all over the United States. Hadassah maintained an active publishing schedule, and the records include hundreds of published newsletters, flyers, and magazines. Beyond paper records are photographs and slides, audiovisual material, artifacts, and born digital material.

As creators and custodians of the records that now comprise the Hadassah Archives, Hadassah took an active role in organizing and preserving its records. Initially, Hadassah's active records of business were housed in its Central Files department. Material that was no longer deemed active records of business, but were still considered to be of historical, evidential, or informational value, were transferred from Central Files to the Hadassah Archives. According to former Hadassah Archivist, Lawrence D. Geller, one of Hadassah's first attempts to organize its records occurred in the 1950s to prepare sources for a projected biography of Henrietta Szold for the 100th anniversary of her birth in 1960.1

During the 1980s, Lawrence D. Geller and Ira Daly, served as Archivist and Assistant Archivist, respectively. Key Hadassah staff that the archives staff worked with included Selma Zack, Head of Central Files; Phyllis Talmadge and Thelma Schmerler of the Hadassah Photograph and Film Department; Joseph Lowin (Director of the Education Department) and Doris Oxenhorn who jointly ran the Hadassah Research Library; and Mamie G. Gamoran and Martha Gold who served as Chairmen of the Department of Archives and Research during the 1980s.

The 1980s was a transformational period for the Hadassah Archives. In the early 1980s, the Hadassah Archives and Research Department received two grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to organize several of the major record groups within the Hadassah Archives. Under the NEH grants the Henrietta Szold papers were compiled and processed; a second archives facility was established in Israel in 1984 to process and preserve the HMO records; and printed guides (see Series I) were created to provide historical context and describe the content of each of the record groups processed under the grants. Also during the 1980s, a records management survey of various Hadassah departments was undertaken and the archives department at Hadassah House was expanded to include a reading and reference room.

Ira Daly worked as Hadassah Archivist into the early 1990s. In the early to mid-1990s, Hadassah engaged the consultant firm the Winthrop Group to help manage the archives as it had become increasingly disorganized. During this time, Winthrop Group archivist, Jessica Silver, created several "Guides to Access" that detailed the inventory of each record group in the Hadassah Archives.

In 1996, another chapter in the Hadassah Archives began with the hiring of archivist Susan Woodland. Woodland worked directly with Hadassah records managers as records were transferred from Central Files to the archives. Under Woodland's tenure, Woodland hired assistant archivists, project archivists, archival consultants, as well as managed volunteers and interns. In the 2000s, numerous projects were undertaken including the implementation of Archivists' Toolkit (an archival data management system); the migration of data from a previous database, Inmagic DB/TextWorks, to Archivists' Toolkit; onsite processing of Hadassah Chapter records in Philadelphia and New York; processing of the Hadassah Public Affairs records and the Hadassah Israel Education Services (HIES) records; a nursing school archives project in Israel; and a major exhibition on the Hadassah Medical Organization. A partial list of archivists, project archivists, records managers, and consultants that worked for the archives or worked with the Hadassah archivist in the 2000s include Eric Balzer (records manager, Hadassah Central Files), Nira Bartel (nurse at Hadassah Hospital who worked on the nursing school archives project), Margaret Bausman (archives consultant), Megan Cox (Hadassah records manager), Tanya Elder (project archivist), Barry Kessler (consultant, HMO exhibition), Eliana Kissner (consultant), Lee Mandell (database and data migration consultant), Angie Park (project archivist), Flora A. Rodriguez (project archivist), and Jeanne "Jenny" Swadosh (project and assistant archivist).

In December 1999, Hadassah rented space from the AJHS and moved its archives to the New York AJHS headquarters building, retaining custody of their materials still under the management of Susan Woodland, who remained Director of the Hadassah Archives until 2011.

In 2014, under a new agreement between Hadassah and AJHS, the Hadassah Archives were placed on long-term deposit at AJHS, with AJHS gaining primary control and dissemination of the Hadassah Archives at which time AJHS became the custodial guardian of the Hadassah Archival Collections with control for both stewardship and access. In 2015-2016, a team of archivists at the Center for Jewish History (CJH), working under the Leon Levy Archival Processing Initiative, processed/reprocessed the Hadassah Archives (1246 linear feet of analog material, as well as born digital material) for AJHS. During this time, processing plans, work plans, project notes, processing protocols, a work log, and a master terms list were created to document the archivists’ work (see Series III). Processing information notes were included in the finding aid for each record group detailing actions performed by the archivists on the arrangement, description, preservation, and separation of the materials.

This record group was originally created under Hadassah Archivist Susan Woodland and was titled "Reference and Research." In 2016, CJH archivists decided to expand the record group to make more transparent the work that the custodians (in this case, archivists) of the Hadassah Archives have undertaken over the years, and to document the history of the body of records that comprise the Hadassah Archives. This decision was informed by current archival theory, specifically that archivists acknowledge the shaping of an archive by its creators and custodians and "that description could be made more representative of the processes by which an archives forms."2

Scope and Content Note

The Collection Management Records in the Hadassah Archives contain paper, digitized, and born digital materials related to the management of the Hadassah Archives from the early 1980s to 2016.

Series I: Early Collection Management dates from the 1980s to the mid-1990s and consists of guides to portions of the Hadassah Archives created by Hadassah Archivists who served in the 1980s and by archivists working for the history-based consultant firm, the Winthrop Group, in the mid-1990s. The guides provide detailed historical and contextual information regarding the content of the record groups that were identified and created within the Hadassah Archives by Hadassah archivists. As the record groups were reprocessed over the years, and as accruals were added to and incorporated into the record groups, the arrangement, extent, and box/folder information in the guides has changed and are no longer accurate, though the historical information continues to provide relevant contextual information. Series I contains printed guides and digitized versions of the guides.

Series II: Collection Management under Hadassah Archivist Susan Woodland is the largest series in this record group as it documents the nearly fifteen years Woodland served as Hadassah Archivist. As archivist, Woodland's work involved providing reference services to both Hadassah staff and outside researchers; managing current archival inventory and accessioning new material; processing new material; hiring and managing archival staff and interns; selecting and implementing archival management tools such as content management systems; collaborating on the creation of exhibitions; and presenting on the Hadassah Archives to Hadassah staff and members, as well as at professional archival conferences. In this work she created and kept records, first paper and then born digital, of reference questions and answers; compiled subject files for reference work; and collected dissertations, histories, papers, and theses from researchers who consulted the Hadassah Archives and/or wrote about the work of Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America. In her work, Woodland worked closely with Hadassah departments and staff such as Central Files that managed the Hadassah’s working records (many of these records were eventually accessioned into the archives) and Public Relations. Included are paper, digitized, and born digital material acquired, created, compiled, or consulted during Woodland's tenure.

Series III: Center for Jewish History Archival Services Collection Management documents the planning and processing work of Center for Jewish History (CJH) archivists from 2015-2016. During this time CJH archivists were tasked with reprocessing the Hadassah Archives to comply with current archival descriptive, preservation, and access principles, standards, and best practices. Further, the archivists processed material that had been accessioned but had not been formally processed. From 2015-2016, CJH archivists processed and reprocessed approximately 1246 linear feet of analog material. In 2016-2017, CJH archivists will process and preserve born digital material in the Hadassah Archives that is located this record group and in Record Group 25: Audio and Moving Images Materials. Series III contains digitized and born digital material detailing processing decisions and work by CJH archivists as well as material found in the Hadassah Archives that was referenced by archivists during their work.

Processing Information

Series I: The paper guides were digitized and converted into PDFs in 2015. Optical character recognition (OCR) was applied to the PDFs and a watermark, "For historical reference only," was added to the pages of each guide. The guides were ingested into DigiTool and linked out via the finding aid. The “Guides to Access” were removed from three ring binders and placed into archival, acid-free folders.

Series II: Paper material. Duplicate material was discarded. Material with personally identifiable information was shredded. Arrangement and titles (subseries, folders) in Series II are based on Susan Woodland’s original titles. Most titles remain the same and only a few were altered slightly. Some boxes were replaced and nonarchival folders were also replaced.

Series II: Electronic material—Subsubseries 1: Email. The professional email of former-Hadassah Archivist Susan Woodland was preserved with the intention that it would be made available to researchers. In 2011, when she left this position, her email was preserved and backed up on the computer network at the Center for Jewish History (CJH) where the office of the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS), a partner organization at CJH, is located. In 2015, the emails were exported to a .pst file from Microsoft Outlook. In 2016, the archivist converted the .pst file to .mbox files with Emailchemy and imported the files into ePADD, an open-source software email processing, discovery, and delivery platform. As of this writing (2017) the emails are being processed in ePADD with the intention of making the email available to researchers via the ePADD Delivery module in the near future.

Series II: Electronic material—Subsubseries 2: Hadassah files. The files comprising "Hadassah Record Group lists" are the result of archival processing. The original computer network folder (files and file structure) has been retained as the preservation master. An access copy was created and this copy was processed by the archivist. The original shared drive folder titled "Hadassah files" contains six subfolders, two spreadsheets, and one PDF. It is assumed the computer "arranged" the subfolders and unfoldered files in the following order: "audio reels jan 2001" (subfolder); "eadToPdf" (subfolder); "Hadassah and other helpful lists" (subfolder); "Israel Exhibition" (subfolder); "Logo" (subfolder); "Photographs" (subfolder); "ARCHVLOG" (Excel worksheet); "Donations" (Excel worksheet); "Guide to RG7 B1 F2 Teheran Childrens Series" (PDF). Folder and filenames were not changed (including misspellings). Duplicate files were deleted.

Some material was moved to other record groups ("audio reels jan 2001" to RG 25; "Photographs" to RG 18). Two Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003 worksheets, "ARCHVLOG" (a log of reference questions from 2001-2011) and "Donations" (a spreadsheet tracking donations to the Hadassah Archives from 2000 to 2011) contain personally identifiable information (PII) and were not included in the access copy in accordance to current privacy law. One subfolder, "eadToPdf" containing XSLT style sheets was also not included. Files located in the remaining subfolders and unfoldered files ("Hadassah and other helpful lists;" "Israel Exhibition:" "Logo;" and "Guide to RG7 B1 F2 Teheran Childrens Series") were complied into one grouping for ingest to expedite processing. PDF/A access copies of Microsoft Word documents and JPEG access copies of TIFFs were created. Digital photographs already in JPEG file format were not changed and were ingested as access copies.

Series II: Electronic material—Subsubseries 3. Hadassah record group lists. The files comprising "Hadassah Record Group lists" are the result of archival processing. The original computer network folder (files and file structure) has been retained as the preservation master. An access copy was created and this copy was processed by the archivist. During processing, duplicate files were deleted. Files from subfolder "rg 13 szold folder lists," containing Microsoft Word document with archival description, were dragged out of the subfolder (to expedite processing and ingest) and placed with the other files. Related record group lists originally located in "Old shared drive" and then in the subfolder "Finding aids" were transferred to this subsubseries. Microsoft Word documents and non-archival PDFs were converted to PDF/A format to be used as access copies. The original files, including Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel worksheets, and PDFs, as well as the PDF/As were ingested into DigiTool and the view/access copies were linked out via the finding aid.

Series II: Electronic material—Subsubseries 4. Old shared drive. The files comprising "Old shared drive" are the result of archival processing. The original computer network folder (files and file structure) has been retained as the preservation master. An access copy was created and this copy was processed by the archivist. The original drive folder contained ten subfolders and nine Microsoft Excel worksheets. One subfolder, "new scope notes" contained one Microsoft Word document that was transferred to the subfolder “Finding aids.” Two Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003 worksheets, "ARCHVLOG" (a log of reference questions from 2001-2011) and "Donations" (a spreadsheet tracking donations to the Hadassah Archives from 2000 to 2011) contain personally identifiable information (PII) and were not included in the access copy in accordance to current privacy law. They also appear to be duplicates of the same worksheet found in "Hadassah Record Group lists" but have been retained in the preservation master. Within each subfolder duplicate files were deleted. Material with PII was not included in the access copy in accordance to current privacy law. The subfolder "Electronic archives" contained many subsub- and subsubsub-folders. The archivist dragged the files out of these folders but indicated the original file structure in the file title linked out via the finding aid. For example, an article within the subsubfolder "Articles" is now represented as "Articles - "From test tube to bedside" by Judy Siegel-Itzkovich (2010)." Some born digital and digitized material was transferred to other record groups. Files that would not open were not included in the access copy. Microsoft Word documents, Notepad documents, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, and non-archival PDFs were converted to PDF/A format to be used as access copies. The original files, including Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel worksheets, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, Notepad documents, and PDFs, as well as the PDF/As were ingested into DigiTool and the view/access copies were linked out via the finding aid. In 2017, an additional 1.25 linear feet (boxes 29-31) were incorporated into the collection as Series X.

Series III: The CJH processing files were originally created in Microsoft Word (.doc) and Notepad (.txt) and were later converted to PDF/A format (preservation standard of PDF). The "Central Files Abbreviations" and "Married Names Cheat Sheet," lists were digitized into PDFs and later converted to PDF/A format.

Series I: Early collection management, circa 1982-1996

Material is in English.
Paper material: 1 linear foot (Boxes 16-17, and 24). Electronic files: 68.8 MB (9 files).
Arrangement:

This series is arranged into three subseries.

Scope and Content:

Series I contains guides to the Hadassah Archives created by archivists from 1982 to circa 1996. Subseries 1 contains printed guides that were created under two grants issued to Hadassah by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The then-Hadassah archivists, Lawrence D. Geller and Ira Daly, wrote the guides—some jointly, some individually—from 1982 to 1986. These early guides provide in-depth contextual information for the material described in the guides, as well as give detailed inventories. Though the arrangement of the material has changed over the years under the management of later archivists—particularly the series, as well as the box and folder numbers—the historical context remains a valuable resource for researchers and future custodians alike. Historical description from the early guides was reused as much as possible by archivists during the processing/reprocessing project of 2015-2016. Subseries 2 contains digitized versions of the printed guides that were produced under the NEH grants are linked out via the finding aid. Subseries 3 contains "Guides to Access" for the record groups comprising the Hadassah Archives. These guides were produced by a Winthrop Group archivist in the mid-1990s. At this time, the historical consultant firm was engaged by Hadassah to help them manage its archives. Though the "Guides to Access" no longer reflect the current arrangement of the Hadassah Archives, they still provide insight into the archivists' management of the Archives.

Series II: Collection Management under Hadassah archivist Susan Woodland (1996-2011) and later under the American Jewish Historical Society, circa 1914-2015

Primarily in English with some material in Hebrew.
Paper material: 14.5 linear feet (Boxes 1-31). Electronic files: Approximately 482 MB (212 files); and 14,013 emails.
Arrangement:

Series II is arranged into nine subseries. With the exception of Subseries 9, material within the subseries has not been rearranged and is organized either alphabetically or chronologically.

Scope and Content:

Series II contains paper and electronic administrative and working files of Susan Woodland while she served as the Hadassah Archivist/Director of the Hadassah Archives from 1996-2011. It also contains some material dating from after Woodland left in 2011, presumably acquired and/or accessed under the custodianship of the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) archivists. The majority of the material in this series documents the different roles, duties, and activities taken on by Woodland as she served as archivist and also documents the transition from paper records to electronic records as the predominant record form created in the workplace.

Administrative files are primarily found in Subseries 1: Archivists files; Series 5: Hadassah Medical Organization exhibition files; and Subseries 9: Electronic files. Reference services material comprise a substantial part of this series, indicating that Woodland spent much of her time doing reference work. Reference materials can be found in Subseries 2: Articles and clippings; Subseries 6: Reference and research; Subseries 7: Reference requests; and Subseries 9: Electronic files. Woodland actively collected articles, dissertations, papers, and theses that were about Hadassah and/or written by historians, researchers, and students who consulted and cited material in the Hadassah Archives. These writings can be found in Subseries 3: Dissertation abstracts, histories, papers, and theses; Subseries 4: Dissertations and papers; Subseries 8: Marilyn J. Sladowsky dissertation research on Irma Lindheim, Jesse Sampter, and Alice Seligsberg; Subseries 9: Electronic files (see "Research papers" in Subsubseries 4: Old shared drive); and Subseries 10: Jeanne Swadosh and Intern Files .

Subseries 9: Electronic files contains Woodland's email correspondence and three networked shared drives maintained by Woodland while serving as archivist for Hadassah. Like the papers records, the electronic records contain administrative and work files. Many of the electronic files have been linked out via the finding aid, though some material containing personally identifiable information (PII) is restricted. See the processing information note for this subseries for detailed information regarding the rearrangement, deletions, separations, and preservation of the electronic material. Networked computer folders and filenames were not changed.

After Woodland left her position as Director of the Hadassah Archives in 2011, the American Jewish Historical Society assumed the management of the Hadassah Archives that had been housed at AJHS since 2000 under an agreement between Hadassah and AJHS. As managers, AJHS had access to Woodland's administrative and work files (paper and electronic) accounting for material in this series dating to 2015.

This subseries contains Susan Woodland's administrative records. Included are materials documenting accessions (new acquisitions physically and legally transferred to the archives); deaccessions (material permanently removed from the archives); copyright management; book acquisitions; budgets and expenses; records transfers; exhibitions; grants; publications research; and presentations. A small number of files originated from Woodland's predecessor.

Though three folders of "bills" (original folder titles, but they also contained material other than bills) were discarded, one folder of selected material from these was kept to chronicle the people who worked for the Hadassah Archives, their work, books acquired, and materials transferred and acquired from 2007-2009. Copyright material sheds light on the use of materials from the archives for publishing and exhibitions, on copyright of photographs, and on the role the archivist had in granting permission to publish. The presentations consist of printed versions of PowerPoint presentations that Susan Woodland gave to Hadassah staff and members and at professional archival conferences. Presentations to Hadassah members took place at various locations including at Hadassah House (Manhattan), at the Center for Jewish History (Manhattan), and at regional offices. The presentations are a valuable resource for historical information regarding Hadassah and key figures in Hadassah's history. Digital versions of the presentations are located in Subseries 9: Electronic files, Subsubseries 4: Old shared drive, "Images—PowerPoint presentations."

Subseries 5: Hadassah Medical Organization exhibition files, 2002-2005

Boxes 17-19.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

In 2005, the exhibition, "A Lifeline for Israel: The Hadassah Medical Organization 1913-1967," was held at the Center for Jewish History where the office of the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) was (and still is) located. In 2000, in an agreement between Hadassah and AJHS, the archives had been placed on deposit (physically transferred but without the transfer of title) at AJHS. As Director of the Hadassah Archives, Susan Woodland assisted the exhibition curator, Barry Kessler, with his research at the Hadassah Archives. The research and planning of the exhibition took place from 2002 to 2005. During this time, Woodland helped Kessler locate materials on the history of the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO), as well as locate materials to be exhibited such as artifacts (objects) and photographs. This subseries documents Woodland's activities related to the planning, research, and execution of the exhibition.

Subseries 6: Reference and research—Subject files, undated, circa 1943-2011

Boxes 9-14.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

The subject files were compiled by archivist Susan Woodland from 1996 to 2011 during the course of her reference work (helping researchers locate materials or information relevant to their interests and inquiries). Woodland described the creation and use of the subject files in 2016: "This A-Z was created as I was learning the collection. When I found something useful for a reference request I photocopied it to file here as ready reference. I added to it less and less as I learned the collection and the history of Hadassah, but it was still invaluable as a quick place to go for information. Dreadful that as it grew there was no index to it, but it was mostly just for me. For topics like the AZMU and Hadassah nurses that were dear to my heart it became the place I put items from all over that connected to the topic." Woodland also added concise responses to reference requests that were often asked such as who attended Hadassah's first meeting. Many of the reference questions originated from Hadassah staff for purposes related to their work. Some of the subject files also include correspondence between the archivist and researchers.

Subseries 7: Reference requests, 2001-2011

Boxes 14-16.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries provides a glimpse into the reference work of the archivist but it also documents the various inquiries of researchers. Most of the correspondence between the archivist and researcher was by email and the email correspondences were often printed out and added to the files, as were photocopies of documentation related to the reference request. Subjects include the Hadassah cookbooks (published by chapters and regions); founding Hadassah members such as Henrietta Szold and Jessie Sampter; the Louis Brandeis portrait Hadassah gifted to the United States Supreme Court; and the Hadassah photograph collection (see RG 18: Photographs). Reference requests (also called "research requests") can also be found in RG 15: Functions and Operations Records in the Hadassah Archives, Subgroup 1: Executive and Administration, Series III: Archives.

Subseries 8: Marilyn J. Sladowsky dissertation research on Irma Lindheim, Jesse Sampter, and Alice Seligsberg, circa 1990s, 1999

Boxes 19-23.
Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries contains the dissertation research files of Marilyn J. Sladowsky. Sladowsky (died in 2004) was an adjunct lecturer in history at Hunter College in New York City and also a fellow at the Center for Israel and Jewish Studies at Columbia University. Her dissertation research focused on three key figures in Hadassah's history: Irma Lindheim (1886-1978), Jessie Sampter (1883-1938), and Alice Seligsberg (1873-1940). Though files are photocopies of materials compiled from various archival collections located in the Central Zionist Archives in Israel, together the files create a unique body of research material. The files were donated to the Hadassah Archives in 2008 and were originally part of RG 7 but were transferred to RG 23 in 2016 to connect this dissertation research with similar material located in this record group.

Subseries 9: Electronic files, circa 1997-2015

Electronic files: 532.2 MB (326 files); 14,013 emails.
Arrangement:

This subseries is arranged into four subsubseries.

Scope and Content:

This subseries contains born digital and digitized material created and/or maintained by Susan Woodland while serving as Hadassah Archivist, and then as Director of the Hadassah Archives. Included are emails and computer files. As of this writing (February 2017), not all material is accessible to researchers due to privacy or technical issues.

Subsubseries 1: Email, 2004-2011

Electronic files: 14,013 emails and 5,238 attachments
Arrangement:

The emails were not rearranged (see Processing Information). In the Discovery Module of ePADD, a redacted version of the email archive (redacted header information and extracted entities) can be browsed (by correspondent and by extracted entity types: persons, organizations, and locations) or searched (simple search, advanced search, and query generator). In the Delivery Module, full-text access (including image and document attachments) allows for browsing (by correspondent; by extracted entity types: persons, organizations, and locations; by attachments; by original computer folders) and for searching (simple search, advanced search, and query generator).

Processing Information:

The professional email of former-Hadassah Archivist Susan Woodland was preserved with the intention that it would be made available to researchers as part of the Hadassah Archives. In 2011, when Woodland left this position, her email was backed up on a computer network at the Center for Jewish History (CJH) where the New York office of the American Jewish Historical Society is located. In 2015, the emails were exported from Microsoft Outlook to a .pst file by Kevin Schlottmann, the then-Archival Services Manager at CJH. In 2016-2017, the archivist tasked with processing the emails converted the .pst file to .mbox files with Emailchemy and imported the .mbox files into ePADD, an open-source software platform designed for processing, appraisal, discovery, and delivery of email archives. In the Appraisal Module of ePADD, the archivist reviewed the email archive for personally identifiable information (PII). Of the over 14,000 emails, only five messages were found to contain PII. These five emails were not transferred into the email archive. In the Processing Module of ePADD, the archivist assigned metadata to the email archive (such as collection title, brief abstract, rights and conditions), performed authority control (editing correspondents; assigning name and subject headings), and reviewed the email again for PII. After processing was completed (February 2017), the email archive was imported into the Discovery and Delivery Modules of ePADD with the intention of making the email archive available to researchers in the near future.

Scope and Content:

The emails include the outgoing and incoming correspondence of Susan Woodland while she served as Hadassah Archivist, a position she held from 1996-2011. The emails date from 2004 to 2011, after the Hadassah Archives were moved to the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS). Also included are email attachments such as documents and photographs.

Subsubseries 2: Hadassah files, 2007, 2012

Electronic files: 29. MB (30 files).
Arrangement:

The files are arranged in the order they were in when ingested into the digital asset management system and do not reflect the order of the original files. See the processing note regarding the original order of the folders and files.

Processing Information:

The files comprising "Hadassah Record Group lists" are the result of archival processing. The original computer network folder (files and file structure) has been retained as the preservation master. An access copy was created and this copy was processed by the archivist. The original shared drive folder titled "Hadassah files" contains six subfolders, two spreadsheets, and one PDF. It is assumed the computer "arranged" the subfolders and unfoldered files in the following order: "audio reels jan 2001" (subfolder); "eadToPdf" (subfolder); "Hadassah and other helpful lists" (subfolder); "Israel Exhibition" (subfolder); "Logo" (subfolder); "Photographs" (subfolder); "ARCHVLOG" (Excel worksheet); "Donations" (Excel worksheet); "Guide to RG7 B1 F2 Teheran Childrens Series" (PDF). Folder and filenames were not changed (including misspellings). Duplicate files were deleted.

Some material was moved to other record groups ("audio reels jan 2001" to RG 25; "Photographs" to RG 18). Two Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003 worksheets, "ARCHVLOG" (a log of reference questions from 2001-2011) and "Donations" (a spreadsheet tracking donations to the Hadassah Archives from 2000 to 2011) contain personally identifiable information (PII) and were not included in the access copy in accordance to current privacy law. One subfolder, "eadToPdf" containing XSLT style sheets was also not included. Files located in the remaining subfolders and unfoldered files ("Hadassah and other helpful lists;" "Israel Exhibition:" "Logo;" and "Guide to RG7 B1 F2 Teheran Childrens Series") were complied into one grouping for ingest to expedite processing. PDF/A access copies of Microsoft Word documents and JPEG access copies of TIFFs were created. Digital photographs already in JPEG file format were not changed and were ingested as access copies.

Scope and Content:

"Hadassah Files" is a networked shared drive computer folder that originally contained six subfolders, two spreadsheets, and one PDF (see processing note for more information). Included are files that were contained in three subfolders and one unfoldered file: "Hadassah and other helpful lists;" "Israel Exhibition;" "Logo;" and "Guide to RG7 B1 F2 Teheran Childrens Series" (PDF). Folder and filenames were not changed.

Subsubseries 3: Hadassah record group lists, circa 1999-2014

Electronic files: 21.2 MB (84 files).
Arrangement:

The files are arranged in the order they were in when ingested into the digital asset management system and do not reflect the order of the original files. See the processing note regarding the original order of the folders and files.

Processing Information:

The files comprising "Hadassah Record Group lists" are the result of archival processing. The original computer network folder (files and file structure) has been retained as the preservation master. An access copy was created and this copy was processed by the archivist. During processing, duplicate files were deleted. Files from subfolder "rg 13 szold folder lists," containing Microsoft Word document with archival description, were dragged out of the subfolder (to expedite processing and ingest) and placed with the other files. Related record group lists originally located in "Old shared drive" and then in the subfolder "Finding aids" were transferred to this subsubseries. Microsoft Word documents and non-archival PDFs were converted to PDF/A format to be used as access copies. The original files, including Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel worksheets, and PDFs, as well as the PDF/As were ingested into DigiTool and the view/access copies were linked out via the finding aid.

Scope and Content:

"Hadassah Record Group lists" is a networked shared drive computer folder that originally contained 91 files (including the files in the subfolder) and one subfolder titled "rg 13 szold folder lists." The subfolder contained 26 files consisting contextual (biographical) and content (scope and content notes; container lists) descriptions that were presumably extracted from Inmagic records. The files consisted of Microsoft Word documents and Excel worksheets and PDFs. Located in another shared drive folder (see Subsubseries 4: Old Shared Drive) is another subfolder titled "Finding aids." Material in this folder that was extremely similar in both content and filenames was transferred into "Hadassah Record Group lists" to locate all of the record group lists together to make it easier to find and access. "Hadassah Record Group lists" now contains 84 files (PDFs and Excel worksheets) containing contextual and content description for most of the records groups that comprise the Hadassah Archives. Besides providing contextual and content information, the files document the work that goes into the archival descriptive process and collection management.

Subsubseries 4: Old shared drive, circa 1997-2015

Electronic files: 482 MB (212 files).
Arrangement:

The material is arranged in the same order as in the original network drive folder with the exception of one subfolder, "new scope notes," that was transferred to the subfolder "Finding aids."

Processing Information:

The files comprising the subsubseries, "Old shared drive," are the result of archival processing. The original network drive folder contained ten subfolders and nine Microsoft Excel worksheets. Contained within the subfolders were 549 additional folders holding 6,145 files. Before processing, the original network drive folder was imaged and retained as the preservation master. An access copy was created and this copy was processed by the archivist. Material with personally identifiable information (PII) was not included in the access copy in accordance to current privacy law. Within each subfolder duplicate files were deleted.

One subfolder, "new scope notes" contained one Microsoft Word document that was transferred to the subfolder "Finding aids." Two Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003 worksheets, "ARCHVLOG" (a log of reference questions from 2001-2011) and "Donations" (a spreadsheet tracking donations to the Hadassah Archives from 2000 to 2011) contain PII and were not included in the access copy. Digital photographs from the subfolder "Images" (which comprise the majority of the 5,418 files and 412 folders stored in the subfolder) were also not included in the access copy as they have not been vetted for copyright and privacy issues.

The subfolder "Electronic archives" contained many subsub- and subsubsub-folders. The archivist dragged the files out of these folders but indicated the original folder structure in the title linked out via the finding aid. For example, an article within the subsubfolder "Articles" is now represented as "Articles - "From test tube to bedside" by Judy Siegel-Itzkovich (2010)." Some born digital and digitized material was transferred to other record groups. Files that would not open were not included in the access copy. Microsoft Word documents, Notepad documents, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, and non-archival PDFs were converted to PDF/A format to be used as access copies. The original files, including Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel worksheets, Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, Notepad documents, and PDFs (non-archival), as well as the PDF/As were ingested into DigiTool and the view/access copies were linked out via the finding aid.

Scope and Content:

The "Old shared drive" is a network drive folder that originally contained 6,145 files and 549 folders. The files that comprise the subsubseries, "Old shared drive," are the result of archival processing (see Processing Information). Included are born digital and digitized administrative and work files of Hadassah archivist Susan Woodland.

The PowerPoint presentations are from "Images," a subfolder that primarily contained digital photographs (see Processing Information). The presentations were created by Woodland and were presented to Hadassah staff and members, as well as at professional archival conferences. They contain valuable historical information about Hadassah and the Hadassah Archives. "Film preservation" includes research about photographers whose photographs are found in the Hadassah Archives (see RG 18: Photographs) such as Hazel Greenwald who served the Hadassah photographer and filmmaker for many years. "Lists" contains lists created by Woodland for reference work. Examples of the lists found in this subsubseries include: themes, dates, and locations of Hadassah's conventions; founding dates of Hadassah Chapters; and the founding members of Hadassah.

Subseries 10: Jeanne Swadosh and Intern Files, 1918-1989, 1998-2010

Boxes 29-31
Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Scope and Content:

This subseries contains the working files of Jeanne Swadosh, Susan Woodland's assistant archivist. The files mostly focus on Hadassah's film collection, especially research on the history of the film collection to apply for grants to preserve and digitize the films.

Series III: Center for Jewish History Archival Services Collection Management, 2015-2016

Material is in English.
Electronic files: 1.11 MB (8 files).
Arrangement:

Alphabetical.

Processing Information:

The CJH processing files were originally created in Microsoft Word (.doc) and Notepad (.txt) and were later converted to PDF/A format (preservation standard of PDF). The "Central Files Abbreviations" and "Married Names Cheat Sheet" lists were digitized into PDFs and later converted to PDF/A format.

Scope and Content:

Series III documents the planning and processing work of Center for Jewish History (CJH) Archival Services from 2015-2016. As part of the Leon Levy Archival Processing Initiative, CJH archivists were tasked with reprocessing the Hadassah Archives to comply with current archival descriptive, preservation, and access principles, standards, and best practices. The archivists also processed material that had been accessioned but had not been formally processed. Series III contains digitized and born digital material detailing processing decisions and work performed by CJH archivists. Included are processing plans, work plans, project notes, processing protocols, a work log, and a master terms list, as well as two lists ("Central Files Abbreviations" and "Married Names Cheat Sheet") from the Hadassah Archives that were frequently referenced by the archivists during their work. Processing information notes were also included in the finding aid for each record group detailing actions performed by the archivists on the arrangement, description, preservation, and separation of the materials.
