The Roger L. Nielsen Papers document Nielsen's teaching, research, and service activities at Oregon State University. The papers includes teaching materials, committee records, and publications. About half of the materials are course materials that include outlines and syllabi, examination blanks and keys, lab assignments, lecture notes, overhead transparencies, and reference materials. These materials document courses in mineralogy, lithology (Geo 315), and microprobe analysis taught by Nielsen.
The collection also includes extensive committee records for University committees on which Nielsen served as a member or chair. Records of the Faculty Senate Promotion and Tenure Committee (2007-2008), Conflict of Interest Committee (2004-2005), University Space Committee (2007-2008), Indirect Cost Recovery Task Force (2002-2004), and Rural Studies Program Executive Committee (2005) are included. Materials pertaining to a possible merger of the College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences and the Geosciences Department are part of the collection. A Geology Department Program Review submitted to the Dean of College of Science in 1989 is also included.
Reprints and photocopies of journal articles, conference papers and abstracts, and other publications that Nielsen authored from 1977 to 2007 are available in the collection.
