R.J. Chambers Archive Classification Schema


This covers Chambers unpublished works - approximately 12,000 records - it was prepared by a professional archivist who, upon examining the RJ Chambers Collection entailing his personal correspondence and related materials, identified a 66 - item schema that Chambers had used to store the materials in shelves in his work office. The schema reflects faithfully how Chambers had catalogued those materials. This material has been further indexed using extended Dublin Core to cater for recipient (the receiver of the correspondence), organisation (the organisation of the recipient of writer) and theme (an overarching classification based on major thematic concepts).
