On the Shelf: New items added to Center for Restoration Studies collections, February 2021

In February our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 107 items to the rare books, University Archives, and Center for Restoration Studies collections.  Most of the items added this month supplemented the books, periodicals (bound and unbound), and A/V subsets within the Restoration collection.  The University Archive and Taylor Hymnal collections also received a few new items.  Some of the additions are newly published, others are new-to-us, and still others represent a second copy or a new-to-us edition or printing.

Abilene Christian College. Prickly Pear, Yearbook of Abilene Christian College, 1952, yearbook, 1952; Abilene, Texas. University of North Texas Libraries, The Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu; crediting Abilene Christian University Library.

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.
