Arrangement

The finding aid for the Playscripts and Promptbooks Collection is a conflation of the original inventory created in 2000-2001, and of a small addition that was catalogued in 2006. Currently the addition is described only by a Box List which has been appended to the original inventory, using the arrangement established with the original inventory and continuing the box numbering sequence. The Scope and Contents note and Index of Authors and Production Personnel do not make reference to the addition, and the RLIN record for the collection summarizes the material in the original inventory only.
