9.3 Manuscript Card Catalog Maintenance

February 10, 2021 - 10:00am by Anonymous (not verified)

Once a collection is processed and a finding aid is available in the finding aids database, any corresponding cards in the manuscript catalog should be pulled, bundled, dated, and stored. If you have pulled the cards to facilitate processing, bundle and store them, and remember to pull the reference card from the catalog.

NOTE: At one time, cards for Beinecke’s cataloged manuscripts also were filed in the Union Manuscript Catalog in Manuscripts and Archives, Sterling Library. Temp slips for uncataloged material also were filed in the Union file, and upgraded when the material was fully cataloged. These practices are no longer in effect.
