Scope and content

Series consists of records created and collected in relation to research projects Dr. Paul Sanborn was engaged in, often with other colleagues, during his employment with the BC Ministry of Forests and/or the University of Northern British Columbia. These archival research records are predominantly unpublished documents, reports, data, and photographs. Some of Sanborn's research projects did not result in a formal scientific publication. In other instances, some of Sanborn's research projects resulted in only a portion of the collected data utilized for a formal publication.

Sanborn compiled details about each research project and its associated records in a summary note. Each of these notes is provided in PDF format along with its research project series. These notes serve as an essential guide for researchers who wish to interpret, utilize, and repurpose Sanborn's data for other future research projects.
