On the Shelf: New items added to Center for Restoration Studies collections, April 2024

In April our colleagues in Technical Services and Cataloging added 383 items to seven sub-collections within our Special Collections holdings. We added items to the Taylor Hymnal Collection, the general rare books collection, plus the ACU Archive and ACU Authors collections.  Additions to the REST collection included items in a variety of formats: books and monographs, bound periodicals, A/V items, and of course the ongoing tract, pamphlet and booklet project.   Browse the list and you’ll see several items in French and German.  These tracts are scarce and make fantastic additions to the collection.

Photograph of four men sitting on their briefcases in grass, each wearing suits, matching hats, and looking at books. A house can be seen in the background.  Ca.1920s.  From Jesse P. Sewell Photograph Collection: https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth597076/

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.

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