The Satellite Network of West Virginia Collection consists of the bulk of documents and other corollaria accumulated by the entity from its inception in 1986 to the time its Director, John H. Buskey, retired from his position early 2001. These documents consist of Minutes and Correspondence, Technical Information, Budgetary Data, Personnel Files, and Work Product, to name several examples. Other corollaria consist of programs found on Videocassette. The Collection is divided into fifteen (15) user-friendly sections as listed in the Table of Contents. In the collection itself, Folders are designated by two different reference numbers. First, Folders are numbered as to their position in the box, as denoted to the left of title in this Registry and on the Folder itself. Second, Folders are sectioned into sets depending on content relation and therefore are alpha-numerically ordered, as denoted to the right of the title in this Registry and on the folder itself. Finally, all documents are arranged to reflect the nature of the original collection kept in the SatNet Home Office. Therefore, certain sets contain alpha-numerically, chronologically, or reverse-chronologically ordered material, respectively--all of which is noted appropriately throughout this Registry.


Special collections material is obtained from many sources and is intended primarily for research and educational purposes. Certain works may be protected by copyright, trademark, or related interests not governed by the department. It is up to the researcher to verify that they have permission to use these materials for publication or other activities.
