On the Shelf: New items added to Center for Restoration Studies collections, June 2019

In June our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 82 items to the Center for Restoration Studies, University Archives, and Rare Books collections.  Among the 82 new items are books, periodical issues (bound and unbound), while others are tracts and a few A/V items. Most are new to us, a handful are second copies, and about a dozen small sets of loose or unbound issues of periodicals are now visible in the catalog.  These were published by local congregations, but function like periodicals, so we have cataloged them that way.  As you look through the list you will see several items published or printed by the University.  It is good to have these now catalogued and available for research. Further, the work performed on some 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.  Jesse Sewell reads a book at a table surrounded by shelves of books.

Our goal is to build 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.
