- Series 2 -- Events
- Series 3 -- Presidents, Administrators, Benefactors, and Trustees
- Series 4 -- Faculty and Staff
- Series 5 -- Students, Student Organizations, Student Life
- Series 6 -- Colleges, Departments, Offices, and Centers
- Series 7 -- Athletics
- Series 8 -- Military
- Series 9 -- Performing Arts
- Series 10 -- Alumni
- Series 11 -- Local Area
- Series 12 -- Affiliated People, Places, and Events
- Series 13 -- Miscellaneous
