Book description
As the title suggests, this is very much a guide to the care and administration of manuscripts. The book covers topics including: Establishing First Controls, Organizing the Collection, Sorting, Evaluation, Preservation, and Cataloging. This, the second edition of Lucile Kane’s reference guide, incorporates references to microfilming which the first edition did not cover. Since this booklet was published before the digital age, it does not cover the new technologies of the past twenty years. However, it is still a very helpful introduction for people wishing to care for and administer paper collections, records, and manuscripts.
