Scope and Content Notes
The Carol Andrews Papers were generated and assembled by Andrews in the course of her work on website design and construction for Oregon State University as an employee of the Office of University Relations. The Papers consist of correspondence, certificates, greeting cards, meeting minutes, newspaper clippings, notebooks, position descriptions, and status reports. The files primarily reflect Andrews' interaction with various Oregon State departments and colleges in the development of websites. In addition to correspondence and printed copies of the finished web pages, these records also include initial drafts of the sites, notes, reference materials, and examples of the source coding. Among these projects is the first Oregon State University web page, which was launched in 1995. The collection's notebooks and status reports track various projects and contain notations about meetings, tasks, priorities, time spent, progress made, and ideas. Andrews' role as an instructor in web development through cooperative learning groups is also reflected in these records as well as her participation on university committees such as the Web Advisory Group.
