Guidelines on Manuscripts and Archives.
Association of Coll. and Research Libraries, Chicago, IL.
The Committee on Manuscripts Collections of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section prepared five statements on recurring problems which plague librarians and archivists. The topics discussed are appraisal of items donated to a library for tax purposes, obtaining legal title to gift materials, the responsibility of a library to make valuable collections known and available to qualified researchers, policies for library reproduction of manuscripts and archives for noncommercial purposes, and considerations for reproduction by commercial publishers. Also included are universal gift form and instructions which were developed by the committee to be adapted for use by individual libraries. (JAB)
