On the Shelf: New items added to Center for Restoration Studies collections, October 2020

In October our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 167 items to the Center for Restoration Studies, University Archives, and Rare Books collections.  Among them are many books and periodical issues (both bound volumes and a few more boxes of unbound issues), and a few university publications, and several hymnals.  The unbound, single issue periodicals continue to be a special focus of cooperation between Special Collections and Technical Services.  A couple of years ago we began in earnest to get these issues sorted, collated, and cataloged so that researchers can know we have them, and so we can know where the gaps are in order to build out a fine, complete collection.  Shan Martinez, Director of Technical Services, has cataloged over 700 boxes of materials already, and is moving ahead rapidly with the remainder.  Her work builds on the sorting and collating work of student workers Avery Reinoehl, Brianna Mullins, and Chava Green, which continued in October.

A significant addition to the collection last month was an almost-complete set of yearbooks from Oklahoma Christian University.  Late in the summer we received an almost-complete set of yearbooks and academic catalogs from Rochester University in Rochester Hills, Michigan.  These sets materials will be a rich resource for researchers interested in the tradition of liberal arts education among Churches of Christ. They are a welcome addition to our collection and we are always looking for other catalogs and yearbooks from sister schools across the Restoration Movement.  If you can help us build out this set of materials, contact Mac Ice at mac.ice@acu.edu.

Many items are not only new to us, the work performed on them reflects original cataloging, which is a tremendous contribution to knowledge about information resources from and about the Stone-Campbell Movement.

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.
