MATERIALS BY AND ABOUT AMERICAN NEGROES, PAPERS PRESENTED AT AN INSTITUTE SPONSORED BY THE ATLANTA UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LIBRARY SERVICE WITH THE COOPERATION OF THE TREVOR ARNETT LIBRARY (OCTOBER 21-23, 1965).
PHINAZEE, ANNETTE HOAGE
PURPOSES OF THE INSTITUTE ATTENDED BY BOTH LIBRARIANS AND HISTORIANS WERE (1) TO REVIEW THE PRESENT STATUS OF LIBRARY MATERIALS BY AND ABOUT AMERICAN NEGROES AND EXPLORE IDEAS FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT, (2) TO CONSIDER METHODS OF IMPLEMENTING PROGRAMS TO INCREASE ACCESS TO MATERIALS, AND (3) TO STRENGTHEN COMMUNICATION AMONG LIBRARIANS AND SCHOLARS FOR MORE EFFICIENT ACQUISITION AND USE OF LIBRARY MATERIALS. CONSISTING OF PAPERS AND PANEL DISCUSSIONS PRESENTED BY THE LIBRARIANS ATTENDING THE INSTITUTE, THESE PROCEEDINGS OPEN WITH A PANEL ON SPECIAL NEGRO COLLECTIONS. THE ORGANIZATION OF MANUSCRIPTS AND MATERIALS WITHIN THE LIBRARY IS CONSIDERED, FOLLOWED BY AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATIONAL UNION CATALOG OF MANUSCRIPT COLLECTIONS. EXISTING COOPERATIVE WORK WITH AFRICAN MATERIALS IS DESCRIBED ALONG WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR AMERICAN NEGRO MATERIALS. A GROUP DISCUSSION POINTS TO PROBLEMS IN MATERIALS SELECTION AND ACQUISITION, AND THE FINAL TOPIC DISCUSSED IS THE RELATIONSHIP OF LIBRARIANS AND SCHOLARS WORKING IN THE SUBJECT AREA, EXTENDED FURTHER IN A PAPER ON BIBLIOGRAPHY AND RESEARCH IN NEGRO HISTORY. RECOMMENDATIONS EMPHASIZE THE AREAS OF ACQUISITION, PRESERVATION, COMMUNICATION IN THE FIELD, ASSISTANCE FROM FOUNDATIONS, AND THE FORMATION OF A COMMITTEE TO IMPLEMENT THE RECOMMENDATIONS. AN APPENDIX LISTS SESSIONS OF THE 50TH CONFERENCE OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF NEGRO LIFE AND HISTORY, HELD DURING THIS INSTITUTE AND ATTENDED BY INSTITUTE PARTICIPANTS. (JB)
