The container list in this guide includes folder level descriptions of materials mainly housed in the American Religions Collection
(ARC). Prior to 2016, the collection was housed in file cabinets; it has since been rehoused in archival cartons. Contents
of most, but not all, of the cartons are listed. Religious groups and families generally are listed as they appear in J. Gordon
Melton's Encyclopedia of American Religions (8th edition, 2009).
