On the Shelf: New books added to Center for Restoration Studies, Taylor Hymnals, ACU Archives and other collections, August 2018

In August our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 143 items to the Center for Restoration Studies, Taylor Hymnals, ACU Authors, ACU Archive, and general rare books collections.  In nearly every case these were new to us.  Further, the work performed on some of these items reflects original cataloging, which is a tremendous contribution to knowledge about information resources from and about the Stone-Campbell Movement.

The Library in Daisy Hall, with a Jesse Sewell reading a book at a table and shelves of books around him.

Our goal is a comprehensive research-level collection of print materials by, for, and about the Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement.  But beyond assembly and preservation, a collection should be discoverable by those who need the information.  Collecting and preserving is only part of our task; those objects must be described and made available.  Thanks to the close and careful work of our colleagues upstairs, who describe our holdings, these materials are now discoverable. By discoverable I mean a patron can utilize our online catalog (such as by searching by author, or title, or subject) to find these materials.
