Printed material removed from an archive

Sometimes printed items are removed from the archive of an individual and added to the printed collections. In such cases, always make a local note using the form of name that appears on the BLIPS. Make an "Ownership" tracing only if there is no physical evidence of ownership.

Examples:

590     ‡a BEIN Zab M6128 993S: From the Michael Hathaway-Chiron Review Papers.
692 1 4 ‡a Hathaway, Michael, ‡d 1961- ‡x Ownership.
590     ‡a BEIN Zab L9935 994S: Presentation inscription from the author to Michael Hathaway, Jan. 1994. From the Michael Hathaway-Chiron Review Papers.
692 1 4 ‡a Hathaway, Michael, ‡d 1961- ‡x Presentation inscription from C. Lynn.

Note: in the 2nd example an ownership tracing for Hathaway is not made.

See List of Manuscript Collections for a list of these names.

Printed material remaining in an archive

Occasionally printed items that are to remain physically in an archive are cataloged by the Rare Book Team. The manuscript call number will be provided by Beinecke Technical Services. Make the local note "Forms part of the [name of archive]" and the appropriate provenance tracing. Make an "Ownership" tracing only if there is no physical evidence of ownership.

Example:

590     ‡a BEIN 2003 456: Forms part of the Felix S. Cohen Papers.
692 1 4 ‡a Cohen, Felix S., ‡d 1907-1953 ‡x Ownership.
