The Use of Manuscripts in Literary Research.
This pamphlet, written from the point of view of the scholar rather than the librarian, was compiled to help scholars who are inexperienced in the use of manuscripts to overcome the difficulties they face in consulting and using manuscripts for their research. Topics discussed include: locating manuscripts, research from a distance, visiting a library, private collections, access to manuscripts (admittance, regulations, aids, photocopies, and permission to publish), and literary property rights (basic facts, copyright, common law protection, ownership of literary rights, unpublished letters, transfer of literary rights, infringement of literary rights, literary rights in other countries, and international copyright).
