    Historical Sketch

    The Communications Office works closely with the Director's Office and other offices to engage the community as well as members of the lab with the advanced science of Jefferson Lab. Through various types of media, the Communications Office continues to reach out and keep all ages involved with science and technology, engaging the future of science. The Communications Office is responsible for producing the material to let the community know about the accomplishments, advances, and goings-on of the Lab.

    Scope and Content

    Within the collection are pamphlets, brochures, handouts, programs, and fliers. Unlike the other sub-collections of Public Affairs, there are no indices.


    This collection is arranged chronologically, as best as the information provided allows. Elements of this collection are house within the digital archives.

    Two series make up this collection:

    • Series I: Hosted/Sponsored Events. This series contains fliers and other elements from events that have been hosted by CEBAF/Jefferson Lab.
    • Series II: General Information. Contained within this series are handouts, fliers, pamphlets and other materials that have been available as general information to not only the staff and users, but also the public at large.
