Subseries 4C, Collections and Divisions, 1856-2016

138 boxes 1 folder
SOME ONLINE CONTENT
The Collections and Divisions subseries consists of records pertaining to several of the subordinate divisions which comprise the Department of Collections. Included are the Cotsen Children's Library, the Graphic Arts Collection, the Parrish Collection, the Scheide Library, and the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library. The records consist primarily of correspondence and other materials related to these collections/division. Several of these RBSC subdivisions were borne of private collections, and as such this subseries contains some correspondence and other material pertaining to the figures associated with them. This is particularly true in the case of the Graphic Arts Collection (Elmer Adler) and the Scheide Library (John H. Scheide).

214 boxes 1 folder 1 websites
SOME ONLINE CONTENT
This series contains the records of the Princeton University Library's Department of Rare Books and Special Collections. First organized in 1948-49, the Department has oversight of the Library's holdings of rare books, manuscripts, graphic arts, and numismatics, as well as several other special collections such as the University Archives, the Public Policy papers, and the Cotsen Children's Library. The origins of the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections extend nearly to the beginning of the Library, and much of this material predates the official formation of RBSC as a unit. Other records concerning the early Department of Rare Books and Special Collections can be found in Subseries 1D: Julian Parks Boyd. Please see subseries descriptions for further information regarding the individual subseries.

The catalogues, lists, and accession records series consists of bound volumes and other materials which document the growth and classification of the University Library's collection. Included are early accession books, classed lists which employ the Richardson Call Number system, alphabetical and shelf lists, holding inventories, and gift acquisition records (known as DeLong lists, after their compiler). Also included in this subseries are several finding lists for the Princeton Theological Seminary Library collection. The volumes cover the acquisition of works; their disposition to various special libraries on campus; their use and circulation; and other miscellaneous topics related to the collections, or even to the Library itself (as in "Appraised Valuation of the Furnishing of the University Library, Princeton University, 1911").

The Shelf Lists, Accession Records, and Inventories series contains records that document the library's collections, primarily in ways that relate to the physical location of volumes on the library's shelves. The Shelf Lists group volumes together according to loosely formed topics. Although these lists are undated, they almost certainly refer to the shelves of the Pyne and Chancellor Green libraries. The Holdings Inventories fulfill a similar purpose, though for a later period when the classification system had become more complex. The DeLong Lists are lists of gifts to the library compiled by E. DeLong of the Acquisitions Department.
