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

In April our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 154 items to Special Collections holdings.  The tract cataloging project continues with several new items. Between tracts, bound periodicals, A/V materials, and monographs, the REST collection grew by 130 items.  The remainder went into the general rare books collections, the Taylor hymnal collection and into ACU Archives collection which contains items published by the University.

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.

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