Clippings, serial issues, pamphlets, flyers, leaflets, reports, resolutions, press releases, correspondence, financial records, card files, and printed matter, relating to radicalism in the faculty and student body of the Freie Universität Berlin and other German educational institutions. Includes a large quantity of material collected by the organization.
The inventory of the Notgemeinschaft für eine freie Universität records was created by the organization itself for their own internal use and that document has been attached here as a guide to the collection. The inventory was generated from a database created by the Notgemeinschaft für eine freie Universität and includes numbered fields designating the three levels of the description. The #20 field corresponds to the highest level group of files, the #21 field corresponds to the subgroup or sub-subgroup and the #90 field designates the individual item or document. These hierarchical levels also have a corresponding numbering system, so the first group is “0,” with the first subgroup being “0.0,” and the first item being “0.0.0001.” Below is an example of this structure:
20. highest level group of files
21. subgroup or sub-subgroup
90. individual item or document
0.0./0001.
To find materials in Notgemeinschaft für eine freie Universität records, first review the inventory, then consult the box list to determine the box location of the files.
