The William W. Cooper Collection is housed in 86 boxes, comprising 85 linear feet, and arranged in 11 series and 18 subseries. The vast majority of the collection consists of paper based materials but some series contain photographs, disks, tapes, and other media. Series were designated for biographical information, publications, professional files, conferences and lectures, professional societies, academic files, correspondence, personal materials, photographs, and reference files. There is also a series designated for reports produced by the Center for Cybernetic Studies (CCS). The CCS materials comprise a separate series from the rest of his publications because Cooper did not author or co-author the bulk of the papers.
