The Department of Aerospace Engineering Publications (.5 linear feet) are divided into four series: Unit Publications, Sub-Unit Publications, Topical Publications, and Student Publications. The bulk of the publications document the Department of Aerospace Engineering and its sub-units.
The Unit Publications series contains printed material published specifically by the Department of Aerospace 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 describing the graduate programs, newsletters, prospectuses and reports. The Bentley Historical Library holds the Alumni Newsletter from 1989 to 1994. There is a prospectus, published in 1988, for the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Building entitled Prospectus for a New Building for the Department of Aerospace Engineering. There is also a report from the department Review Committee published in 1988.
The Sub-Unit Publications series contains publications from subordinate offices, departments, programs and organizations within the Department of Aerospace Engineering. These publications are arranged alphabetically by the creating sub-unit. The Sub-Unit Publications include brochures, case statements, programs, from the Aerodynamics for Industry Program, Aeronautical Design Symposium, Aerospace Engineering Complex, and the Aerospace System Design Team. Under the heading "Development" publications such as lectures from the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Aerospace Prize and brochures and programs describing the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud building are found. There is a newsletter, published in 1991, from the Michigan Space Grant Consortium. The annual report published in 1982 describes the activities for the Self-Contained Orbital Research Experiment (SCORE) from the Senior Design Class.
The Topical Publications series includes printed materials published to document specific events or activities such as celebrations or one-time conferences hosted by the Department of Aerospace Engineering. The Topical Publications series includes printed material from the Golden Anniversary celebration which took place in 1964. It includes an article entitled Space Research at the University published in 1963, convocation addresses, a brief history of the first fifty years of aerospace engineering at the University of Michigan, and programs.
The Student Publications series contains publications published by student groups within the Department of Aerospace Engineering. The Student Publications series includes flyers from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
