Title Tavistock Institute registered document series
Date 1945-2005
Ordering Instructions This archive record describes a grouping of orderable items: to order any of them for consultation, order copies or view them if they have been digitised, navigate down the archive hierarchy to Item level.
Description The papers are arranged and organised according to the document number they were given by the Institute when they were in use, and broken up into the series reflecting the unit creating the documents, and their original arrangement: TIHR registered document series; 1T (Technical); A series (administrative); Centre for Applied Social Research (CASR); Human Resources Centre (HRC); 2T (referring to the 2 Tavistocks; Tavistock Clinic and Tavistock Institute of Human Relations); Evaluation Development and Review Unit (EDRU). Includes reports and outputs of projects carried out by TIHR, as well as other records given a document number by the Institute.

These records cover a broad range of topics relating to the Tavistock Institute's application of social sciences to contemporary issues and conflicts, including within the workplace and industry, home and society, government, healthcare, family, and other group situations.

The document series also documents the theoretical perspectives and interdisciplinary approaches adopted by these social scientists, as they evolved in practice in the twentieth century: systems and field theory combined with new perspectives in psychoanalysis and psychology, from action research, through to organisational development and evaluation work.
