Formerly the Electronic Archive, Key Workplace Documents is a unique collection of materials which encompass aspects of the employer-employee relationship. The collection includes selected key government documents, public policy position papers, and statistics.

The Key Workplace Documents series was established by Stuart Basefsky, an Information Specialist and Instructor at Catherwood Library and Director of the IWS News Bureau for the Institute for Workplace Studies (IWS). Content for the series is currently selected by librarians and staff of the Catherwood Library.
