    Scope and Content The folder labeling format is uniform throughout the collection. The primary structure follows the Series and Sub-series hierarchy. Series are identified by a roman numeral (I, II, III). Sub-series are identified by a capital letter (A, B, C). Folder numbering is within a series or sub-series, not the box or total collection. The numbering resets with a new series or sub-series. Boxes are not used for creating collection structure, series and sub-series are broken up between boxes.
