Scope and Contents

As part of a network of social work agencies and community organizations the YWCA of the U.S.A. and its local associations are sometimes part of studies assessing such programs. As participants, organizers or interested parties the YWCA of the U.S.A. uses the results of the studies to maintain awareness of the communities they serve and inform program decisions. Studies of the Kansas City, Missouri social agencies include two studies of the Community Chest agencies and their relationships, a study from the National Urban League concerning African Americans in Kansas City, a National Urban League study of social work services and a community study of Kansas City's populations and services.

Conditions Governing Access

From the Record Group: This collection is open for use without restriction beyond the standard terms and conditions of Smith College Special Collections.

However, by agreement with the YWCA of the U.S.A., microdexes known to contain financial records or personal health information (usually on job applications) were not digitized and/or not published in our online repository as part of the CLIR Digitizing Hidden Collections grant. These microdexes may still be accessed on the original microfilm, and digital files may be made available to individual researchers upon request.

Conditions Governing Access

From the Record Group: Until we move into New Neilson in early 2021, collections are stored in multiple locations and may take up to 48 hours to retrieve. Researchers are strongly encouraged to contact Special Collections (specialcollections@smith.edu) at least a week in advance of any planned visits so that boxes may be retrieved for them in a timely manner.
