Project Instructions
This collection contains a list of those who were matriculated into Oxford University between 1880 and 1892.

Images with names that should be keyed should be classified as the "Oxford Men" form type. This includes lists of names and photographs with names. Names found in the internal index that contain names and page numbers should be classified as the "Index" form type.

On the "Oxford List" form type we are keying names, birth place, birth date and residence date. The residence date for most records will be the matriculation date, which is often found after the abbreviation "matric."
