Finding Aid, Upper Yazoo Project 3A-2

Part of the Upper Yazoo Project 3A-2 project

Author(s): R. Christopher Goodwin

The MCX-CMAC utilizes the standard archival practice of unique naming of collections. The purpose of this is to avoid redundant and confusing collection names commonly found with archaeological investigations. Therefore, this collection is referred to as "Upper Yazoo Project 3A-2.” This naming practice is consistent throughout the finding aid, the file folder titles, and box labels. The linear extent of this collection is four (4) inches.

All field and catalog records were duplicated according to the Cobb Institute’s requirements. The copies were also packaged in acid-free folders and labeled identically to the original folders, with the exception of a notation indicating that the folder contains copies. These copies are stored separately from the originals.

Four rolls of black and white and color photographs, negatives and prints, were removed from this collection to more appropriate storage. One 3 ½-inch floppy disk was removed from this collection. This disk was received and opened by MCX staff archaeologists. The file “Invyazo.dbf” was converted into Microsoft Excel and printed. Subsequent attempts to open the files on the disk failed. The floppy disk is presently unreadable. The document that was recovered was printed and placed in folder 24, “Electronic Records, Electronic Documents; [Electronic Media Removed]; n.d.”
