Abstract:The handbooks in Series 1 describe programs and activities available for undergraduate students, while Series 2 contains guides specifically intended for graduate students at Georgia Tech. Handbooks for students in specific fields are found in Series 3.
Note:These handbooks have been assigned various call numbers: T171 .G42 G412X (the undergraduate student handbooks in Series 1); T171 .G42 G43X, T171 .G42 G432X, T171 .G42 G4329X, and T171 .G42 G433X (the graduate handbooks in Series 2); T171 .G42 G42X (the Aerospace Engineering handbooks in Series 3); and T171 .G42 G425X (the Electrical Engineering handbooks in Series 3).

Scope and Content Note

The handbooks in Series 1 describe programs and activities available for students, as well as student and academic services and procedures. Although these volumes seem to be geared mainly for undergraduate students, they may also have been distributed to new graduate students. The handbooks in the first two subseries of Series 2 contain similar information to those in Series 1, but the guidance is specifically intended for graduate students at Georgia Tech. Series 2, subseries 3 contains information for graduate research assistants and graduate teaching assistants. The handbooks for students in specific fields, Aerospace Engineering and Electrical Engineering, are found in Series 3. The Series 3 handbooks include more curricular information than those in the other two series.


Arrangement

Arranged into three series:

SERIES 1. Undergraduate student handbooks

SERIES 2. Graduate student handbooks

SERIES 1: Undergraduate student handbooks (T171 .G42 G412X), 1973-2011

Description

The handbooks in this series describe programs and activities available for students including campus traditions, social life, extracurricular activities, student government, religious organizations, sports activities, and dormitory life. These books also cover legal, health, and library services as well as other academic services and procedures, such as registration, payment of fees, and parking. Later handbooks also include the current academic calendar. These volumes are geared mainly to incoming undergraduate students, either freshmen or transfer students, and their parents, but they may also have been distributed to incoming graduate students. There appear to be missing volumes in 1996, the year of the Olympics in Atlanta; 2001; 2005 and 2006; and 2008. The publication became available digitally after about 2009.
