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

In July our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added over 130 items to the Center for Restoration Studies collections and 25 new items to the Taylor Hymnal Collection.  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.  Several of the entries this month are of tracts and pamphlets and several more are for periodical titles for which we have unbound issues.  The work on unbound periodical issues continues (some titles have just a few issues, others several boxes worth) and the resumption of work on tracts is a great boon.  We have over 1000 tracts already foldered and cataloged, with another 2000 or so foldered and ready for cataloging.  When this is complete we will tackle the backlog of tracts and booklets…several boxes worth.  I anticipate very few of these will be held by any other institution, so the original cataloging will see an uptick in coming months.  We already have a student worker working in advance sorting the backlogged boxes.  When the catalogers are ready, we will be ready as well.  I hope that future installments of this monthly post will include many more tracts, pamphlets and booklets.  While these are too slim or small to stand on a shelf, they are a significant witness to Restoration thought.

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.
