The Department of Chemical Engineering Publications (.6 linear feet) consists of three series: Unit Publications, Sub-Unit Publications and Topical Publications. The bulk of the publications document the Department of Chemical Engineering.
The Unit Publications series contains printed material published specifically by the Department of Chemical Engineering. These publications are defined as being widely distributed and may be published at regular intervals. They are arranged by genre of the publication.
The Unit Publications series includes brochures, bulletins, directories, histories, manuals, and programs. The bulletins include course catalogs for the department from 1916 to 1940. There are also descriptions of the graduate program in Chemical Engineering from 1974 to 1995. There are two histories in the Unit Publications series. The first is a brief history written in 1980. The second A Century of Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan..., published in 2002, was compiled by Professor James O. Wilkes as a centennial history for the department. How to Succeed in Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan was written to help incoming students find their way through the department, the university and the city of Ann Arbor. There are programs describing the Donald L. Katz Lectureship in Chemical Engineering from 1971 to 1989.
The Sub-Unit Publications series contains publications from subordinate offices, departments, programs and organizations within the Department of Chemical Engineering. These publications are arranged alphabetically by the creating sub-unit. This series includes brochures from the Industrial Affiliates Program.
The Topical Publications series includes printed materials published to document specific events or activities such as fund-raising or one-time conferences hosted by the Department of Chemical Engineering.
