The realities of restricted records at the California State Archives: the commission for teacher preparation and licensing

The records of the Commission for Teacher Preparation and Licensing arrived at the California State Archives in several accessions, some marking the records as restricted and others not. This created a potentially confusing situation for researchers hoping to access the records and the archivists trying to help them. The Graduate Intern took on the task of arranging and describing these records in accordance with the proper archival methods and principles so that restrictions on accessibility would be clear.
 
 Sources of Data: Several types of sources were consulted during the writing of this thesis project, including manuals, web pages, publications, and archival materials at the California State Archives.
 
 Conclusions Reached: The arrangement and description of this collection allowed for a more precise distinction between those records that are restricted and those that are available for public use.
