Identification and Coordination of African-American Materials in Six States. Annual Report.
Matthews, Geraldine O.
In August of 1971 a program was launched at North Carolina Central University School of Library Science to identify and coordinate African-American materials in southeastern states. Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia were chosen on the basis of their geographical proximity to North Carolina and the wealth of materials on or about black people that were already available in some of their libraries. The librarians of 6 institutions in the representative states conducted the state searches for materials. Newspapers, periodicals, published works, manuscripts, bibliographies, broadsides, and other forms of materials were collected. This pilot study may be used as a model for eventual national control of African-American materials. (Author/HS)
