On the Shelf: New items added to Center for Restoration Studies collections, February 2023

In February our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 198 items to Special Collections holdings.  The tract cataloging project resumed with just north of 150 new items.  About 20 A/V items in various formats came into the REST A/V collection.  The remainder went into the general rare books collection, the Taylor hymnal collection, and one new bound volume for REST periodicals.

We have a student worker dedicated to working on tracts and pamphlets for REST, and she is back at work.  I expect to see many more additions throughout the spring semester.  There are also quite a few more A?V items in various formats that will come into our REST and University A/V collections.

Library, Abilene Christian College, 1917. The library was in the Administration Building on the old downtown campus. The Prickly Pear Yearbook for 1917 is available at: https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth39970/m1/44/

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.

198 new items…cataloged, shelved, and ready for research:
