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

In November our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 135 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 several 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 significant addition to the collection last month was a fine group of yearbooks from Abilene Christian Schools (formerly known as the Campus School or Demonstration School).  These yearbooks spanned from the middle 1940s to the early 1970s and with one or two exceptions were all new-to-us.  This group comes on the heels of similar acquisitions from Oklahoma Christian University and Rochester University.  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 added in November 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.
