African-American Materials Project Experiment in Regional Cooperation. Final Report.
Hall, Carol J.
The African-American Materials Project was a three year venture in bibliographic control of African-American materials. It was a regional project, designed to locate and describe materials in six Southern states. The project was divided into three periods. Phase I was devoted to locating existing collections through the use of a questionnaire, preparing checklists to aid in the search for specific items, and beginning to locate newspapers, periodicals, and bibliographies. During Phase II substantial progress was made toward locating manuscripts and archives, theses, oral histories, and pre-1950 imprints. Phase III activities included completion and distribution of a consortium list of materials purchased with a Special Purpose Grant and submission of a manuscript to a publisher. It is hoped that this project will serve as a model for other regional ventures or as a nucleus for a national project. (Author/WH)
