Series 6: Reference Material.  – 1967-1978; predominant 1972-1978 (some undated).  – 20 cm of textual records.

Scope and Content: 
This series consists of reference material, relating to a wide spectrum of women’s issues, which was used by the Task Force to research the status of women, and to support the information given in the report compiled for the President.  The documentation includes approximately seventy articles written by external organisations, university personnel and other individuals.  Publications, newspaper clippings, leaflets, government information, reports, salary and statistical information are also included. 

This series is divided into four sub-series:

    Sub-Series 1: Status of Women - Material Related to UNB; 1972-1978
    Sub-Series 2: Status of Women - Reports from Other Universities and Outside Agencies; 1973-1978
    Sub-Series 3: Salary, Statistics and Discrimination; 1967-1978 - predominant 1973-1976
    Sub-Series 4: Government Documentation; 1975-1977


Title is based on the content of the series.

It should be noted that the reference material was unsorted on arrival at the UNB Archives.  All attempts have been made to divide the large number of reference documents into a logical order; however, the probability of overlap between the sub-series is high, for example, statistical information may constitute part of a report compiled by another university, or human rights issues may form part of a government document.
