We’ve been busy writing finding aids for recent acquisitions and revising finding aids for sets of papers already in our holdings. You can browse all of our collections on DigitalCommons. See something below that piques your interest or could be useful for your research? Get in touch and let us know what you’re thinking about; we’d love to help!

Churches of Christ Audio Collection, 1955-2007, MS#497 [New Finding Aid]
This accession combines three previous accessions into a single collection. R 2007.843; R 2009.191; and R 2010.098 (each containing one cu ft box) combined into a single collection. None of the accessions had any contextual information accompanying the recordings, nor provenance, nor unifying collector or entity responsible for them. It is likely that they comprise accumulated single item donations. Further, it is also likely that since they did not fit neatly into the recording activity of Jack Burford, that they did not properly belong with that collection. Box 1 (2007.843) contains 7 inch audio reels and one 5 inch reel; some are labeled and some are blank or unmarked. Names include: Randy Becton, Bill Banowski, Juan Monroy, Stanley Shipp, John Allen Chalk, Glenn Owens, Ken Mick and Bob Scott. Box 2 (2009.191) contains sermon and lecture tapes, many from Lubbock Christian University events, some pertaining to youth ministry. Box 3 (2010.098) contains unmarked cassette tapes, nine 5 inch audio reels, five reels in tin cases titled “Tales from the Great Book.”
