Records include living collections records, construction and landscape design plans, reports, correspondence, publications, ephemera, photographs, audio visual materials, and official meeting minutes.
Collection is arranged into series by document type. Series and subseries are arranged by document type, alphabetically, or chronologically depending on the material. Arrangement for each series or subseries is recorded in the record for that series or subseries.
