Series contains correspondence, financial information and other records of the Sugar Workers and Industry Education Resource Library (SWIERL), including bibliographies, acquisitions, records of incorporation, and other administrative information such as storage space rentals and plans for eventual disposition of materials to the archives.

In an effort to broaden its base of potential support, in 1992 ICCSASW officially incorporated its documentation centre as SWIERL. The SWIERL corporate embossing seal can be found in box 2006-060/061 - item 2006-060/061(01). ICCSASW itself was never incorporated, but operated under the umbrella of the Anglican Church of Canada. When ICCSASW ceased to function in 1998, SWIERL continued to maintain the documentation left over from the project, until 2006 when it was transferred to the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean (CERLAC) at York University.
