Processing Part One

When new manuscripts make their way into Perry Special Collections, they go through a thourough process to make them ready to be used by patrons. They go through accessions to become a permanent part of the library. Then workers analyze the items and enter information into the catalog so that patrons can find what they want.

A new item that is going through the processing stage is the Joseph H. Rosenthal collection of book leaves. These beautiful leaves cover a variety of  subjects and the print is lovely.This series will discuss some of the beautiful and interesting items that will soon be available for patrons of Perry Special Collections
